Everybody Dance Now

Get on your dancing shoes!

Blackpool and dancing go together like fish and chips. Blackpool has a long history of social dancing, beautiful ballrooms and the world’s best dance competitions. Not to mention its history of big bands, iconic nightclubs and Northern Soul venues. No wonder Strictly Come Dancing has a Blackpool show!

When our dance gallery opens you can really let loose and have a boogie. Watch your friends and family dance through time. Gaze at glittering ballroom dresses and find about how they are made. View iconic Northern Soul objects and find out why Blackpool is called the spiritual home of ballroom.
