I’m heading north in the morning for another documentary shoot for Supadance at the home of ballroom and Latin dance – #Blackpool. This time it’s the Supadance National League being held at The Norbreck Castle Hotel (Queens Promenade, FY2 9AA).
The Supadance League is a series of regional team-based ballroom and latin dance competitions carried out between dance schools. Aimed at those who want to bridge the gap between social and competitive dance the competition culminates in a grand final each year. It’s obviously a bit more involved than that and far better explained here.
I’ve yet to witness any of these league events but understand that the atmosphere is electric. With around 600 participants there’s apparently a lot of lively and energetic support from the audience. It’s a crammed schedule too – starting on Friday evening with a grand parade and ending on Sunday evening when the winners of the various classes will be crowned. They’ve got a Facebook page if you are interested in following the action as the competition progresses
Anyhow – bags are now packed and we should be there early afternoon to start on the documentary.
