Times are provisional and are subject to change.
The Ballroom Dancers’ Federation have been organising the World Championship for over thirty years and are delighted that Great Britain has been granted these titles to enable us run to the prestigious event on behalf of the World Dance Council. We are also lucky enough to host thisevent at the home of Ballroom Dancing itself, the Empress Ballroom, Wintergardens, Blackpool.
As you are probably aware the cost of running such a championship is extremely high and without the generous support of various companies and individuals over the years it would have been very difficult for Great Britain to host such an event . Our appreciation goes to the following for their support and loyalty to our dance business over the years , “Asia Starlight Dance Association", "Albourne Village", “Arthur Murray International”, Supadance Internernational, Freed of London,
Chrisanne Clover, Edda Hsu, Espen International , Dance Sport International and Dance Options Cheam . The BDF is also grateful to Mrs Sandra Wilson and her team who take
full control of all the ticket sales and arrangements at the Wintergardens . Such an event relies on the support of the audience and the dance school principles who bring in large parties, the fabulous cabarets and opening ceremonies that have taken place over the years and the work of the BDF sub-committee and Martin Cutler who has has co-ordinated the past events.
