Now Dance Today readers have the chance to win one in our latest 24-hour Friday competition, which opens at 1pm today, February 14 and closes at 1pm tomorrow.

The two 15-track albums – the first is an orchestral album for ballroom and Latin dancers, the second created with sequence dancers in mind – feature, as you might expect, romantic waltzes, rumbas, foxtrots and a couple of tangos, all in strict tempo, so you can dance around the kitchen table with your loved one this weekend.

Tracks on the sequence special included “Say It With Flowers”, “The Power Of Love”, “Wonderful Tonight”, “Waltz Of A Lifetime” and “Once In A While”/”Embraceable You” – and many more from sequence favourites Richard Keeling, Larry Green, David Last, Ronnie Price, Dave Sheriff and David Read.

On the ballroom and Latin album, expect orchestral arrangements of such classics as “Love Is A Many Splendoured Thing”, “I Just Called To Say I Loved You”, “It Had To Be You”, “Can’t Smile Without You” and “Paradise”.

Each of the six winners will receive one of the collections as a prize. For more on the albums, click here. Both collections are available to purchase at just £7.50 from

We have six downloads up for grabs. To enter, simply let us know through which album you would like – BALLROOM or SEQUENCE – by email, Facebook or Twitter by 1pm on Saturday, February 15.
