About World of Dance Weekend - Now in it's 3rd year!
A 3 day festival of cultural social dance workshops, incredible performances, social dance 'themed' parties, short lectures and new for 2019, a dance museum.From Salsa to Ballroom - Polish Folk to Jive - Morris dancing to Argentine Tango. Probably the most eclectic social dance weekender in the World. With the selection of all the exciting workshops we have on offer every year, you'll see why it has been labelled as such. Don't forget, our very diverse workshops cater for all levels and abilities.
We all love to see a show. We've had Tango, Morris Dancing, Ballroom and Bellydancing performances by some wonderful talented artists over the last 2yrs. 2019 will be no different. Expect the line up this year to be just as exciting.
Social dance parties are a must during WoDW. These will take place during the afternoon and evening over 3 days with an incredible line up of DJs and performers. Our celebrated parties have included historical themes such as the Prohibition era, Fiesta Latino and Vintage. The World of Dance Weekend social dance parties are a great opportunity to practise what you've been taught or relax and let your hair down. There's always a bar!...
History and education plays an important part at World of Dance Weekend. Our extensive timetable includes short historical lectures by some of our very knowledgable WoDW instructors. Their talks take you on a journey through the cultural roots of selected dance styles. Over the last 2 yrs we've had very informative and fun lectures on the history of Argentine Tango, Waltz and Bellydancing.
Exciting times ahead - 2019 shall see for the first time - World of Dance Weekend's very own 'dance museum'. A great opportunity to look back on images, memorabilia and global dance styles from bygone years. We are particularly excited about this.If you're new to World of Dance Weekend and would like to know more. Please contact me via the email below. It would be great to hear from you.
I hope to see you in September
