The Blackpool Dance Festival is the world’s largest Ballroom dancing event, attracting thousands of competitors from around the globe in a 9-day extravaganza of Ballroom and Latin American dancing.
This May, for its 93rd year, Blackpool will once again see a glittering array of dancers take to the dance floor of the Winter Gardens’ Empress Ballroom. Below the chandeliers hanging from the iconic gilded, barrel-vaulted ceiling, contestants will compete for coveted Championship titles in amateur, senior and professional categories.
The Empress Ballroom is the perfect venue to stage the world’s most prestigious dance competition, with dancers inspired by live music provided by the illustrious Empress Orchestra and Dance Band.
The World’s Most Anticipated Annual Celebration Of Dance
This year’s event takes place from 24th May to 1st June 2018, starting off with the British Amateur “Rising Stars” Ballroom and Latin competitions and culminating with the British Professional Ballroom Dancing Championship. The Festival also incorporates the widely anticipated Ballroom and Latin Formation Dancing Championships, and Professional American Smooth and American Rhythm Championships.
Preparing For Competition Success
While audiences eagerly await the energy, animation and flamboyant glamour of the Blackpool Dance Festival, for a dancer, an enormous amount of dedication and investment goes into preparing for the competition. Choosing the right attire from head to toe is critical to attaining perfection on the dance floor.
To project confidence and energy, a dancer must feel fabulous. Costumes must combine practicality with aesthetics, attract attention to impress the judges and complement the character of the dance. Quality, comfort and durability are important considerations for both shoes and dance costumes, to ensure a dancer can move freely without restriction and to enhance their form while dancing.
All serious dancers will appreciate the difference that high quality, well-fitting competition shoes can make to their overall performance. This is why professional dancers only wear shoes they can rely on from leading dance specialists such as Ray Rose.
