Ex-MK Dons player Izale McLeod will don his sequins to take part in the glitzy charity event, Celebrity JustDance 2017.
McLeod will team up with a professional dancer to perform a Ballroom and Latin dance and a fun freestyle dance at this glamourous black tie event at the Arena MK, all in aid of MK Dons Sport & Education Trust (SET).
Izale said “This is going to take me way out of my comfort zone, scoring goals will seem easy compared to doing a samba in front of an arena full of dance fans!”
Celebrity JustDance is the brainchild of Accursio Romeo, Owner of Romeo Dance Academy and Ballroom and Latin Dance Champion. Accursio said “Now in its fifth year, Celebrity JustDance 2017 is going to be bigger and better than ever for MK50. We have teamed up with MK Dons SET to celebrate their 10th Birthday and Celebrity JustDance will be the climax of a week full of spectacular events and celebrations.
Izale will be joined by other Milton Keynes celebrities from the world of entertainment and business, including one of the UK’s leading vocalists, Jazz Singer and actor, Jacqui Dankworth.
Joining Izale and Jacqui are Owner of PJ Care and Founder of Women Leader MK, Jan Flawn CBE, Nicholas Mann Managing Director of Interdirect, Ryan Lightfoot Client Manager of Mirus IT plus a host of local business celebrities from Milton Keynes
All of the profits from Celebrity JustDance will go to MK Dons SET, Accursio said “We are delighted to have MK Dons SET as our charity this year, over the last four years we have raised over £130,000 for charity.
Last year we raised £28,004.58 for Willen Hospice. This year we are hoping to top that but cannot make this happen without event sponsorship and a big audience. We already two fantastic headline sponsors PJ Care and Workflow and would love to get more MK companies involved. All of the celebrities’ footwear are supplied by International Dance Shoes, based in Milton Keynes and the dresses are from professional dancewear designer Loren James Bespoke Designs – this will mean the contestants will be kitted out to Strictly standard!
Celebrity JustDance will be held at the MK Arena on Saturday 18th November. It’s unlike any other charity dance event. All contestants are paired with a professional dancer, dresses are supplied by dancewear designers and contestants perform to a live band – why spend your night watching it on TV when you can experience it live in Milton Keynes?
Guests can enjoy a night of glitz, glamour and live music as well as being the fifth judge by taking part in our text vote – are you ready to channel your inner Bruno, Craig or Darcy?
