Hearts are set to race on the dance floor as the Mater University Hospital brings its own exciting version of the hit show to the Helix. A total of 53 dancers have come forward from all Directorates / Disciplines to make this event a truly Mater Spectacular Evening – all in aid of the Dublin Neurological Institute. This glamorous, glittering occasion will take place on Friday 20 November 2015.

Our dancers include Administration staff, Consultant & non consultant hospital doctors, staff from Catering, Cleaning, Nursing, Portering, Profession allied to medicine etc etc. Fifteen couples will be selected to go forward for seven weeks of intensive training by top professional choreographers. The remaining dancers will train for a group dance. The audience on the night will be entertained by a 2 group dance off as well as exhibitions from the 15 couples who will battle it out on the dance floor.

This is a wonderful opportunity for our courageous competitors to learn new skills, get fit and make new friends. It will bring the entire hospital community together and most importantly, given the profile of the event, will be a huge fundraising opportunity for the DNI.

The event will be judged by a celebrity panel of three (to be revealed) which will add to the glamour and excitement of the evening.

The Board of the Dublin Neurological Institute express their sincere gratitude to the organisers, the dancers and sponsors of this event.
