I’M ONLY HAPPY WHEN I’M DANCING – Strictly winner Joanne Clifton to lead Grimsby Lockdown dance workshops, offered FREE to the public

Strictly Dancing Star Joanne Clifton
10 weeks, Thursday 21 Jan – Thursday 25 March 7pm – 7.45pm

Strictly sensation Joanne Clifton has partnered with culture company The Culture House to offer a series of Lockdown dance workshops especially for Grimsby’s residents. 

Joanne will lead the free sessions on-line, on a Thursday evening for ten weeks, offering an insight into her dancing world and an introduction to ballroom and latin styles including salsa, samba and tango.

During the first four sessions, Joanne will focus on teaching different, easy-to-follow dances. For the remaining six weeks, participants will collaborate with the Strictly star to learn a new dance, to be performed together on-line as part of the St Andrew’s Hospice Danceathon, over the weekend of March 26 and 27.

This “I’m only Happy When I’m Dancing” programme, made possible with funding from Arts Council England, is the latest in a series of events and activities produced by Grimsby-based arts organisation The Culture House, designed to support residents through the effects of the pandemic.

Culture House director, Charlotte Bowen said: “We’re of course delighted to have Joanne on board with us, to help bring some enjoyment to people over the next few weeks and months.

“As a highly professional dancer born in Grimsby, taught by her own parents Keith and Judy Clifton and now of Strictly ‘fame’, we have no doubt that Jo will make the perfect Lockdown dance coach, bringing her sparkly personality to a series of fun and uplifting workshops to help us to dance the blues away”

Joanne said: ““Wow! I am soooooo ready to keep dancing in Lockdown with the fab-u-lous people of Grimsby, my beloved home town!  We’re going to have such fun AND keep fit AND have a whole dance ready to perform at the Dancethon! I’m so grateful to the Culture House and to the Arts Council for making this happen. Fellow Grimbarians! Let’s forget about our troubles this Lockdown, and come together as a town to show just how great our Great Grimsby can be!”
