Blackpool Preparation Weekend (Letchworth)

CMD12jpgI just wanted to share with everyone the wonderful experience we had performing at the first ‘Blackpool Preparation Weekend’ in Letchworth on Sunday 15 May 2011.

I wrote a post about this event back in February and have been looking forward to this unique use of the Empress Orchestra ever since. It’s the first time that we have been asked to perform in a closed environment (with no public) giving the couples chance to experiment with their choreography in a stress-free way ahead of the 2011 Blackpool Dance Festival.

The Spirella Ballroom was a wonderful venue with excellent facilities, great acoustics and spacious dance floor.

There were some wonderful dancers present from all over the globe including top professional couples; Alexander Zhiratkov & Irina┬áNovozhilova-Popovic (ranked 15th in the world) and the current world’s number 1: Arunas Bizokas & Katusha Demidova.

A wonderful and unique opportunity for all to be able to dance alongside these wonderful artistes in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere to the live music of the Empress Orchestra.

Thanks must go to Jonathan Crossley, Lyn Marriner, Tony and Amanda Dokman for bringing this weekend together in their own unique and inimitable style. Everyone… and I mean everyone was buzzing at the end of Sunday afternoon!

We are delighted to have been asked to perform again for their 2012 ‘Blackpool Preparation Weekend’ and if you want to be a part of this fantastic training camp ahead of the world’s biggest and best dance festival in 2012 then please book early as places are limited and on a first-come, first-served basis.

For information on how to secure your place ahead of next year’s weekend please email: Tony & Amanda or Jon & Lyn at:
