Warner Leisure Hotels takes to the dance floor as Strictly Come Dancing grips the nation once again. Rather than just watch the dramas unfold from the sidelines, for those who are inspired to leave their sofas and experience the magic of the dance floor firsthand, Warner Leisure Hotels is launching the perfect experience.

Warner Leisure Hotels is delighted to announce their new exclusive collaboration with BBC Worldwide to launch BBC TV's Strictly Come Dancing themed hotel breaks in 2010. Running from February to July, across five locations, guests can get up close and personal with some of their favourite Strictly stars as they bring the show to life - including Darren & Lilia, James & Ola, Brian & Kristina, Anton & Erin, Vincent & Flavia, Ian & Camilla and Karen Hardy. Joining the professional dancers will be Strictly Come Dancing judges Craig Revel Horwood and Len Goodman*.

During their Warner break guests will develop their own dancing skills with tuition led by some of the top professionals from the world of dance. So for anyone taking their first steps, or trying to perfect more intricate dance sequences this is their chance to experience the moves as seen on TV and learn from the very best. The package also includes a spectacular 'Strictly Showcase' - a chance to watch beautifully choreographed dance displays and show-stopping routines.

The three or four night stays in five historic hotels across the UK, allows guests to be part of the show. Get involved with the glitz and glamour by dressing up and opting to take part in the ‘Strictly Come Dancing Comes to Warner’ competition - the perfect opportunity to show off their new skills and dazzle the crowds. These unique breaks give the chance to compete, judge, or simply sit back, relax and enjoy being part of the 'live' audience.

Warner Leisure Hotels' head of creative entertainments, Sarah Dakin, said: "This exciting collaboration with BBC Worldwide and the Strictly Come Dancing brand will add spectacularly to the Warner Leisure Hotels popular dance break portfolio, bringing the show alive for both experienced dancers and those new to the floor. Ultimately we are offering our guests a unique experience to get up close and personal with both the glitz and glamour and their Strictly Come Dancing favourites."

Richard Halliwell, commercial director for Dancing with the Stars (the international title for Strictly Come Dancing) at BBC Worldwide said: "We are delighted that Warner Leisure Hotels will be taking the Strictly Come Dancing experience to fans throughout the country. The collaboration with Warner's, the first of its kind for the Strictly Come Dancing brand, offers an opportunity for like-minded fans to get together and waltz into the world of Strictly."
