Get your dancing shoes on

Comedy queen Laura Daniel has chosen Shine as her charity for this season’s Dancing with the Stars on Three. You can support Laura and Shine by watching Three’s Dancing with the Stars live and voting - text 'Laura' to 3333. You could even host a Watch Party with your family and friends as a fundraiser.

Laura supported Shine last year donating her time and talent to a comedy show raising funds for victims of domestic violence. Shine is thrilled to be Laura’s chosen charity.

When it comes to punchlines, funny girl Laura Daniel never misses a beat - but will her impeccable comedic timing translate to the dancefloor?

Trading jokes for jives, Laura comes to Dancing with the Stars with a long history of keeping people entertained. The ‘Palmy proud’ comedy queen has been a regular feature on Kiwi screens for many years as part of the core cast of Three’s much-loved Funny Girls and Jono & Ben as well as a regular guest panellist on 7 Days.

Laura, who is a two-times Billy T award nominee, is also part of the musical comedy duo Two Hearts alongside partner and co-writer Joseph Moore. The pair have performed their theatrical spectacular to audiences in Auckland, Melbourne and Edinburgh.

No stranger to putting on a good show, the multi-talented comedian is ready to take to the dancefloor and show New Zealand an endearing new side to her.

Laura says of her foray into the world of competitive dancing: “Even though I’ve only been dancing for like a week, the Dancing with the Stars team already consider me a professional dancer - can’t wait to see what celebrity they give me!”

Watch Three’s Dancing with the Stars live – Sundays at 7pm and Mondays at 7.30pm – and support Laura and Shine. #TeamLaura #DWTSNZ
