Junior Dance Festival

by on Sep.16, 2009, under Events

Blackpool Dance FestivalJust to let children and parents know that from 2010, the Blackpool Junior Dance Festival will be moving from Blackpool Tower to the Winter Gardens.

There are several reasons for the move: A larger dance floor, easier access, tighter security, better facilities for the dancers, adjudicators and orchestra and also for those selling merchandise. This coupled with the fact that the building can be dedicated to the JDF and not shared with the general public during the Easter holidays makes it a more suitable venue.

The “Jungle Jims” experience has changed somewhat over recent years. Each child now has to be accompanied by an adult and they are only allowed in there for one hour,¬†without makeup! (that includes the girls). The space and layout is better for this kind of event and for dancers and spectators there should be more on offer at the Winter Gardens from 2010.

If you have any comments or questions that you wish to leave on this or any of the subjects on our Blog, please feel free to do so.

Best wishes,

Ashley Frohlick
