Amateur dancers are set to take to the floor as part of a competition in aid of charity.
Proceeds from the Strictly Come Prancing contest at Ardoe House Hotel on Saturday night will go to Banchory-based Forget Me Not Club, which provides support and activities for those living with dementia.
A total of 11 couples have been taking part in dance lessons for several months and will perform either the Cuban-influenced cha-cha or the Spanish paso doble.
They will be scored by a panel of judges, which includes last year’s winner Martin Burgess, and Janice Mair from Repsol Sinopec, which nominated Forget Me Not Club as its chosen charity.
Lesley Fletcher, development manager at the Forget Me Not Club, hopes the event will raise around £20,000.
She said: “Several of our dancers have a connection with our resource centre in Banchory and have a family member or friend living with dementia, so they know only too well how important it is to raise as much money as possible to support our ongoing work. ”
