Local personalities from across the county will be putting their best foot forward on 12 November, when dance extravaganza Strictly Northampton celebrates a decade of dancing.
University of Northampton Senior Lecturer, Hayley Henderson, who teaches undergraduate Human Resource Management and Organisational Behaviour, is one of this year’s selected contestants.
Celebrating its 10th year, Hayley and the contestants have just eight weeks to learn Ballroom and Latin American dance routines, before dancing in front of a packed auditorium at the Royal and Derngate. The dancers will perform group and individual routines, before a judging panel and a live audience, with the winner on the night taking home the coveted Strictly Northampton glitterball trophy.
Speaking about her motivation for stepping into her dancing shoes, Hayley said:
You can also get involved by sponsoring Hayley and donating to support local hospice, Cynthia Spencer, visit Hayley’s JustGiving page. JustGiving sends your donation straight to Teenage Cancer Trust and automatically reclaims Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer, making your donation worth even more.
Hayley joins a host of UON staff to have taken part in the danceathon, which includes former Students’ Union president Victor Agboola, Senior Lecturer, Karen Woolley, Ecomms Officer, Amy Stears, and many more.
