Blackpool Junior Dance Festival

I’ve completed my first Blackpool dance festival as a judge…. and survived! To say I was a bit nervous before I went would be an understatement, but the other judges soon but me at ease and I had a great time throughout the week.

Blackpool Junior Dance Festival

There were 100’s of couples from across the world and it was a very difficult competition to judge as so many of those young dances were excellent. It was great to see that the Great Britain has so much young talent for the future.

Thanks for reading
