My Personal Message


My name is Maria and I work with SVP as a relief manager in our charity shops across the east region. One of my colleagues was involved last year which got me interested as I love dancing. At first I was hesitant to do it, but eventually I made my mind up to give it a try and I am delighted I did.


Its not only taking part in the event and entertaining everyone that I am looking forward to. I also hope to be able to help those in Ozanam House, to extend awareness of the amazing work that happens in the centre and of course to raise lots of money and support the many children, young people and the elderly who benefit from the centre and from SVP.



My name is Marcus, I am from Germany and I work for Liberty Mutual Insurance. I am good friends with one of the childcare staff in Ozanam House so I know about some of the great work that’s done here. As I’m now settled in Ireland, I feel it’s a good time for me to return some of the great hospitality I received when I arrived in Dublin and when the opportunity to fundraise through Ozanam Come Dancing came up, I was hooked!

I’ve done a little dancing before. I took ballroom dancing classes when I was 18 in Germany and over the last 15 years I’ve taken some Salsa classes around the world, including, Germany, Ireland and America – how international! So I obviously hope to entertain the audience with a good show on the night, but more importantly I want to be able to help Ozanam House to continue supporting the families, kids and older people that they work with into the future.

Ozanam Come Dancing 2020

Date: 06 March 2020

Ozanam Come Dancing is the BIG annual fundraiser in aid of Ozanam House Resource Centre, a community centre operated by SVP in Dublin 1. This year, 11 couples have volunteered to take on the challenge. The show will take place on Friday 6th March at 7.30pm in Liberty Hall, Dublin 1 and will be hosted by television presenter and fashion designer, Brendan Courtney. Brendan will be assisted by our guest celebrity judges including Eilish O’Carroll and Katherine Lynch. This year, with your help, we will engage 280 children and young people from the north inner city on our summer projects in June, July and August. At this challenging time of the year for so many families in our community and with your support, we will give them a memorable experience in a safe, nurturing, yet fun-filled environment. Please support our volunteer dancers involved our BIG annual fundraiser, Ozanam Come Dancing.
