So if you fancy pulling some shapes on the dance floor as DJ PK spins tracks on the decks, grab yourself a ticket or two from here.
In a statement, Kay said: "I've honestly never had so much fun as I had working on Dance for Life. The atmosphere was so happy and positive; it really is a great way to raise money for the worthiest of causes.
"All people have to do is turn up and dance. I'd also like to encourage people to get themselves sponsored via JustGiving.com where a special Dance For Life team page has been set up."

There isn't long left to wait until the festivities begin, with the first show being held on 10/11 April in Manchester.
The 46-year-old will then move on to the Echo Arena in Liverpool for the 8/9 May before heading to London's Alexandra Palace on 29/30 May.
Kay was previously booked for a 26-date arena tour, but had to cancel in December 2017 due to 'unforeseen family circumstances'.
The original tour was due to kick off in March 2018 and run through to April 2019, starting at Birmingham's Resorts World Arena (formerly the Genting Arena) in April 2018 and ending at Liverpool's Echo Arena in March 2019.
In a statement released at the time, the comedian posted on Twitter: "Due to unforeseen family circumstances, I deeply regret that I am having to cancel all of my upcoming work projects.
"This unfortunately includes my upcoming stand-up tour, Dance for Life shows and any outstanding live work commitments.
"My sincerest apologies. This decision has not been taken lightly and I'm sure you'll understand my family must always come first.
"I've always endeavoured to protect my family's privacy from the media. I hope that the media and the public will continue to respect our privacy at this time. Once again, I'm very sorry."
Prior to the delay, the Phoenix Nights creator hosted 14 Dance for Life events as part of a nationwide tour, which proved to be a huge success while raising money for charity.
