Oran Strictly Come Dancing
After months of planning & preparation Oran’s Strictly Come Dancing was an excellent night on Saturday 20th last. It was a superb show from start to finish with the dancers serving up an unforgettable performance each with a different dance style. Well done to Mary Quine & Ivan Connaughton who were in first place with Sinéad Hoban & Joe Davis in second place, however, the 30 dancers really were all winners.
It was a really enjoyable & successful night and in getting to the night, we have a few people we would like to thank; First & foremost our 30 wonderful dancers, without you guys, we would have no show! They gave up so much of their free time to train & really put in the effort to produce a show that was top class, so entertaining & it will go down a s night to be remembered long into the future, for this we are ever so grateful.
