On Saturday 3rd October and Sunday 4th October the UKA hosted its Premier Dance Festival at the Empress Gardens Blackpool. Kim and Bogdan competed on Saturday in the styles of Street Dance / Hip Hop. On Sunday the rest of the team competed in the styles of Ballroom and Latin. Dance schools travelled from all over the country and beyond including Scotland, Ireland and Portugal to show off there dancing in front of the judges so the standard of dancing was very high making for stiff competition even for the more experienced dancers. Under pressure you all performed so well.
I’ve only got a few photographs from the day. If you have any nice pictures you would be happy to share then please forward them onto me and I will add them to this post. email firstname.lastname@example.org
Dance school competitors.. Keep up the good work and make the most of your practice sessions as there is now only 1 week to go before the UKA’s Premier Dance Competition. Also, please try on your outfits and shoes to be sure they fit! You don’t want an outfit malfunction on the day! If you’re new to competition and want some advice then don’t hesitate to ask Estelle or the more experienced pupils. We will be pleased to help. This event will be very busy so please arrive early to find where we are seated and allow good time to change into your dance outfits etc.
