Get Fit and Beat the Winter Blues with the Ultimate TV Dance Weekend

Get Fit and Beat the Winter Blues with the Ultimate TV Dance Weekend

With Christmas now over – and Saturday nights no longer filled with Craig, Shirely, Motsi, and Anton – it’s little wonder that many people feel a little down. But Donahey’s, is here to help, offering Strictly superfans the chance to beat the winter blues – and get fit at the same time – by booking the ultimate immersive Star Break for 2023.

For anyone planning to pick up some healthier habits in the New Year, the Donahey’s 3-day dance-themed weekend is the perfect opportunity to learn some new moves with the help of the Stars Of The Show. Over a spectacular three days, everyone’s favourite Strictly stars will be on hand to deliver six fun-filled hours of Ballroom and Latin dance classes to everyone, regardless of ability. There’s never been a more exciting way to exercise, get fit, and tone up.

Along with the star-studded classes, Donahey’s very own highly experienced dance teachers will be working closely with guests to help each person perfect their moves. The personalised, hour-long dance lesson is tailored to individual abilities, ensuring everyone can join in, have a good time, and see what they’re capable of.

For those who’d prefer to just go with the flow, there are two full nights of dancing, and a fantastic selection of music to enjoy floor side, including a 15-piece Big Band.

TV favourite Anton du Beke says, “It is the best weekend you’ll ever have… ever! If you like dancing, and you like stars, this is the weekend for you, especially if you’ve got two left feet!”

Already confirmed for the 2023 Star Breaks are BAFTA Award Winner Giovanni Pernice, Strictly Superstars Jowita Przystal & Nikita Kuzmin, Kai Widdrington & Nadiya Bychkova, Aljaz Skorjanec & Janette Manrara. They’ll be joined by Argentine Tango choreographers Leandro Palou & Maria Tsiatsiani, World Ballroom Champions Warren & Kristi Boyce, and British Dance Champion Finalists Argo Oblikas & Alessia D’Orazi.

Paul Donahey, founder says, “This time of year is always a little bit blue, with the excitement of Christmas over and Strictly finished. But we’ve got so much to be looking forward to, the highlight of course is our famous Star Breaks. We’ve got a truly incredible line up of Stars who are ready to put on their dancing shoes and get everyone cha cha-ing away!”.

Of course, while there are plenty of dance classes scheduled for the non-stop three-day extravaganza, there’s also several opportunities to simply sit back and watch the stars strut their stuff. The dance champions are set to perform live showcases throughout the weekend, and with reserved floor-side seating, guests will be right in the heart of it all, enjoying the performance of a lifetime.

There’s also the chance to get up-close to the stars at Q&A sessions to learn more about the dancers’ experiences on the show, their favourite celebrity partners, and their plans for the future.

The glitzy weekend takes place at the opulent 5* Celtic Manor Resort near Cardiff. Regularly ranked as one of the top hotels in the UK, Celtic Manor offers award winning spas, three Golf Courses, five bars and six restaurants.

The Donahey’s weekend takes place Friday 14th July – Sunday 16th July 2023, with an early bird booking discount available until 31st December 2022. Donahey’s all-star dance breaks for 2022 sold out months in advance, and more than 60% of spaces are already booked for 2023.
