Danny, who is better known for spending his spare time playing football in the local leagues is taking part in the Strictly Learn to Dance 2018.
Strictly Learn to Dance sees 24 amateur dancers come together to raise money for Dove House Hospice. Explaining more about how he became involved Danny said;
“It all started with a tag on social media from Luke Medcalf when he saw an advert for male applicants, and here I am making the final 24 whittled down from 100 applicants.”
“We have Janine Badger and her fantastic team teaching us the routines which are part of 12 weeks of training broken down to two hours every Thursday night.”
Danny will be showing off his new-found skills later in the year when he takes part in two dances.
One is a Jive, which he will be dancing to a song from Shrek –I’m a Believer and also an American Smooth, to the song of Singing in the Rain.
Anita Brien from Dove House Hospice said;
“Men are very hard to find for this event. Danny said on his application he wanted to take part and support the hospice while learning new skills.”
“He attended a mini dance night held at the hospice and when asked about his experience, he said none, I am terrible.”
“Everyone taking part has pledged to raise money for Dove House and also help raise awareness of the hospice in the community.”
Danny is now looking for people to get behind him and his dance partner Emma Waudby, adding he is totally out of his comfort zone.
“So far I have really enjoyed the training, I have met some fantastic new people and picking the steps up quite nicely. I have a brilliant dance partner in Emma.”
The grand final will take place on 23 March at Hull City Hall and those wanting to see him show off his new-found skills can do by contacting him and purchasing a ticket.
