The weekend was not just about hard work, there was lots of fun as well!

After all the preparation, hair and makeup done by Karen there was lots of time to enjoy the sights in Blackpool. Great fun was had by everyone when we visited Pleasure Beach. The younger dancers had a great time with the older girls!

Just one big happy family. As a dance school we always make sure that we enjoy the travel just as much as competing at a high level of dancing.

                      See you again soon Blackpool !!!
