Yvonne took part in Strictly Northampton to raise money for Cynthia Spencer Hospice, a charity very close to her heart. Having never danced before it was a challenging few weeks of rehearsals before she would perform at the Royal and Derngate in from of a live audience.
Supported by Step-by-Step dance company, a Northampton based dance school in the Town Center, the show ran exactly the same as the TV show. With two individual dances; a ballroom an Latin and two group dances; a small group and large group.
It was a fantastic experience for Yvonne, learning to dance, raising money and meeting other amateur dancers.
The night was fantastic and she won top prize for the most amount of money raised at £2,500. She thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and has since kept dancing!
