danceThe Monte-Carlo Marathon, which is being organised by Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo, is looking for thirty couples to take part in the Place du Casino danceathon on July 1.

The event will evoke the marathons that took place during the Great Recession in the US where couples had to dance overnight in order to win a meal. Water and other essentials will be offered to all the couples who start the evening.

The action gets underway at 6 pm and continues until 1 am the next morning. However, it’s not all freestyle. Tango, Salsa, and the Waltz will all be required, as well as Rock and Swing.

Four pairs will be eliminated each hour and the last six couples still dancing at midnight will be subject to more tests until one pair is left standing.

The Grand Jury Prize will be two prestigious gifts offered by Chopard, will other dancers could win a cruise for 2, one night at the Hotel Hermitage with breakfast for 2 people, a day at Thermes Marins, including lunch at the restaurant Hirondelle and 1 cryotherapy treatment per person, or two subscriptions to the 2017-2018 Monte-Carlo Ballets season.
