Get Dancing

As part of our Get Dancing project, we’ve created some fun resources for you to use in your classroom and PE lessons. Our short video looks at the history of ballroom dancing in Blackpool including some of the novelty dances that took our ballrooms by storm in the 1930s. Your class will learn about how we are celebrating Blackpool’s history with a brand new novelty dance for the town and how to get involved.
