Celebrity Strictly Come Dancing Experience

Strictly Come Dancing experience: Take to the dancefloor with the stars of the hit TV show  

Two decades and 21 series since Strictly Come Dancing waltzed into our lives, millions tune in each week to see the latest troupe of celebrities go from rank amateurs to tango titans. If you have dancing in your blood, you’ve surely wondered how you might fare on the show. Now, with Gala’s Strictly Come Dancing hospitality, we’ll put you through your paces and give you the chance to impress the show’s most famous former contestants and pros.

Hit the dancefloor with a famous face in our unique Strictly Come Dancing experience

Wherever you’re based in the UK, we’ll recreate the Strictly Come Dancing experience at a convenient luxury hotel. Don’t worry if you’ve never done a foxtrot before: we’ll get you up to speed with a two-hour introduction to the fundamentals of dance, under the watchful eye of your chosen celebrity. Whether you’d prefer one of the show’s dance professionals or a favourite contestant like Judy Murray, Peter Andre or Darren Gough, just say the word and we’ll send them onto the dancefloor. 

The excitement is electric as your Strictly Come Dancing experience builds to a friendly competition to crown the winner from your group. Then it’s time to cool down and join your celebrity guest for a delicious lunch, where they’ll share stories from their time on the legendary show and reveal what really happens behind the scenes in the fast-paced world of TV.

These are just some of the dance professionals and contestants who could join you – simply get in touch with the Gala team if you have another name in mind.
