Ballroom Glitz: The Blackpool Way

Ballroom Glitz: The Blackpool Way

The Winter Garden’s Film Festival is happening between 9 – 13 March and we are excited to be part of this year’s programme!

Join Rebecca, Showtown’s Assistant Curator, as she waltzes through Blackpool’s incredible dance history. From the piers to the Palace, this talk will look at how the biggest and most famous dance competition in the world came to be right here in Blackpool.

Taking inspiration from novelty dances of the past, Blackpool has a brand new dance craze for the 21st century called ‘The Blackpool Way’. Why not join us to learn the steps and even have a go yourself!

Showtown's talk is part of the Swing into Spring: Vintage Film and Dance afternoon taking place at the Winter Gardens Pavilion on Sunday 13 March 2022.
