If this year's Strictly Come Dancing has got you eager to test out your foxtrot, then why not learn from the very best while relaxing on a river cruise through the gorgeous French countryside?
This is your chance to meet Anton Du Beke, who has been on the series since it first began, and his partner and former Strictly favourite Erin Boag, who will join readers on-board and show you how to dance like a professional.
You'll sail through historical cities and stunning landscapes on an Emerald Waterways Star-Ship, experiencing the laid-back lifestyle and fabulous flavours of this classic region of France. Setting sail from Lyon, your eight-day voyage will take you along both the Rhône and Saône rivers, stopping at the charming towns of Avignon, Arles, Viviers, Tournon and Chalon-sur-Saône.
Anton and Erin always bring something magical to the dance floor
and you will see them perform at an historic venue in Avignon, plus
take part in a dance masterclass on board. Anton and Erin will also
host a fascinating Q&A session, during which you can ask them
about their lives and careers and what really goes on
behind-the-scenes at Strictly.
Earlier this year, Anton and Erin were the stars of our Strictly-inspired river cruise along the Danube, and as one reader said of that holiday: "It's been such a wonderful experience seeing Anton and Erin perform. I cannot imagine anything better."
