Click the link above for dates and information on the Blackpool Dance Festival which starts on Thursday the 21st May held at the Winter Gardens. You don’t have to buy a ticket to get access to all the trade stands selling everything dance related including music, books, clothes, shoes, soles and glue for worn out shoes etc. If you’re in town pop in and have a look. Last year I bought two dance tops for competition here and a pair of Latin dance shoes and some spare soles and glue to get more life from my dance shoes! and the trade stands are a great source of inspiration particularly if your adding detail to a competition dress. The dresses on offer are spectacular with equally spectacular price tags!
