Highland Hospice and Inverness Ice Centre are once again launching the search for next year’s Strictly Inverness contestants.

The charities are looking for 32 individuals, 16 male and 16 female, to train by attending dance lessons between January and May of next year. Requirements are that contestants must have little or no dance experience and be committed to both their training schedule and fundraising for the two charities.

Online entry will be available from Monday 16 September here .

The hugely popular fundraiser which celebrated its tenth anniversary in May of this year, has raised a net £1,526,160 for Highland Hospice and Inverness Ice Centre. Last year’s event alone raised an incredible net figure of £324,400.

Highland Hospice Communications Officer Wendy Morgan said, “It’s exciting to begin our search for next year’s Strictly Inverness stars. We always attract a range of people with a mix of ages and reasons for participating.”

She added, “Once we have our competitors in place, we ask that they give the competition their all – with a real commitment to training and, importantly, to fundraising. Aside from the glitz and glamour, this is a charity event which exists to raise much needed funds for two local causes close to the hearts of many. So if you fancy becoming a hit on the dance floor, meeting a new group of people, increasing your confidence and helping two fantastic Highland charities, this could be your moment!”

Strictly Inverness 2020 will kick off with a launch night on Wednesday 13 May, leading on to two separate competitions on Thursday 14 and Friday 15 May. The top four couples from each of these competitions will then compete in Saturday’s grand final which will determine the winning couple.

The closing date for applications is Monday 28th October.
