I’m very excited to be involved in Ozanam Come Dancing 2019. Ozanam House is such a fantastic resource and I’m delighted to be in a position to do my bit to help out. I work in the digital health industry as Head of Commercials for an Irish company, Two-Ten Health. I took part in a similar event 5 years ago, and after watching the recording of the show afterwards, I made the decision not to pursue my dream of going professional!  But now I hope to enjoy the amateur journey from start to finish.




I work as a sales representative in Symantec and having had the experience of being involved three years ago I jumped at the chance to do it again. I have some experience in ballroom dancing, as a non-professional of course and fundraising through dancing is great idea so I am excited to be involved again. I hope to win and have a lot of fun, meeting new interesting people and as long as I survive the judge’s questions after my dance I’ll be fine.

Dance; American Smooth Viennese Waltz

Music; “Ain’t I Got to You” by Alicia Keys



I was asked by a friend of mine to help raise funds for Ozanam House by participating in their Come Dancing Fundraiser. I live very close to the North inner city where SVP do their great work and I am well aware of the tough challenges the children in this area face. I work for a company called Global Vision as a retinal photographer. I have zero dance experience but I am always willing to try new things and I have no problem making a show of myself, so if I can raise money for a very worthy cause at the same time, even better. I hope to learn to stay upright in heels and if I could get some sort of rhythm into me that would be fantastic. If nothing else, I should provide some entertainment :-).



I work in Independent News and Media. Unfortunately, I have no dance experience and I have 2 left feet but I am up for the challenge. I have 2 colleagues who participated last year and they had a great experience and they convinced me to take up the challenge. I hope I contribute on a laughter scale as well as helping fund the Summer Camp in 2019 for a great cause. My biggest fear is that I will let my beautiful partner Orla down.

Olivia & Rory

Hi I’m Olivia and I work in property development and I’m Rory and I am a publican and own the Jug Pub on Francis St. We got involved in Ozanam Come Dancing through a friend who had taken part last year. We got married in October this year, and despite our first dance, we have no dance experience. We both have 2 left feet! For our first dance we literally just shuffled around the dance floor. Even though we can’t dance we thought it would be fun to do, and most importantly a chance to support a great cause. We hope that we don’t fall over on the night!
