Travel Trade Strictly Needs You!

The Northern Ireland Travel Trade are having their first ever 'Travel Trade Strictly' this year and it is all in the name of charity!

This is a casting call to ANYONE within the trade who wishes to take part. You can enter as a couple (partner must be within the Trade) or just let one of the organising committee know and they will pair you up with another participant.

Each couple will dance for their own chosen charity and winners will be crowned on both money raised and judges scores on the night. This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a really exciting Travel Trade event.

Participants will be granted 10 weeks of dance lessons and choreography training as well as weekly rehearsal space courtesy of Clarkes Dance Studios in Belfast. They will also receive support, where needed, for fundraising events etc.

The organising committee is made up of Michaela Banks from Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, Aaron Fletcher from Travel Solutions and Jenny Fletcher from Selective Travel. Aaron and Jenny both took part in Strictly last year and know exactly what is entailed.

“Strictly was so much fun”, said Jenny of her experience…”It is intense at times, requires a lot of commitment and dedication in terms of fundraising and rehearsals. It took me completely out of my comfort zone, but there is no point in doing something for charity if it doesn’t challenge you.”

Michaela added: “Dancing is my background and something I am so passionate about, this is a chance to combine my two passions for a worthy cause and something I am excited to be a part of.”

Aaron went on to say: “At this stage we are just gauging interest from within the Trade, but plans are well under way to stage the event this side of Christmas, so I would encourage anyone interested to get in touch with us as soon as possible so we can send them full details and get them signed up.”
