SATUR­DAY night was the mo­ment of truth as par­tic­i­pants in the up­com­ing ‘Strictly for St Cather­ine’s’ found out ex­actly who they were go­ing to be part­nered with.

Thirty vol­un­teers agreed to put on their danc­ing shoes and hit the dance­floor as part of Novem­ber’s fun­drasier for a new play­ground for St Cather­ine’s Spe­cial Needs Schools.

Fif­teen of the vol­un­teers are ac­tu­ally spe­cial needs as­sis­tants at the school, while the re­main­der of the dancers con­sist of fam­ily mem­bers and friends of some of the chil­dren at­tend­ing St Cather­ine’s.

The Moun­tkennedy Inn was the set­ting for Satur­day night’s an­nounce­ment. As MC, Bren­dan Kennedy kept things tick­ing over as chore­og­ra­phers Rikki and Ais­ling re­vealed the pair­ings and the dances they will be daz­zling the au­di­ence with.

Both Lynda Woolm­ing­ton and Sean Dease and James Driver and his part­ner Denise Treacy will tackle a Bol­ly­wood dance while Nikki Lan­grell and Trevor O’Brien will go rock n’roll.

Colin Nolan and Keelin Brown will chan­nel their in­ner Johnny and Baby as they take on some Dirty Danc­ing.

It’s a salsa for Colm Baumann and Zoe El­liott while Kieran Tim­mons and Laura Ka­vanagh will tackle a quick­step.

There will be a lit­tle Mo­town magic from Gemma Arnold and Paul Ka­vanagh, and Stephen Brady and Jane Dilly.

Caro­line Lane and De­clan Har­ris will be do­ing the tango while a hot-footed jive is on the cards for Ni­amh Syn­nott and John Can­non. Mary Hef­fer­nan and Mick Byrne will take on a cha cha and, last but not least, Ais­ling McDon­ald and Sean Lavelle will present a paso doble.

The big night takes place on Satur­day, Novem­ber 11, at Fitz­patrick Cas­tle Ho­tel, Killiney. Tick­ets cost €25.
