United Kingdom Modern Ballroom/Latin Formation Championships

Posted on April 6, 2011


In a superb opportunity for dance studios and their students to participate in a new dance championship as a team, June 26 will see the presentation of the United Kingdom Formation Championships for Juveniles, Juniors and adults. 

The championships will take place at the Tower Ballroom, Blackpool, in association with Philip Wylie of Holiday and Dance. Until recently the Tower Ballroom hosted the Junior Dance Championships before they were transferred to the town’s Winter Gardens. 

“It is appropriate that the opportunity has been taken by the Tower and Holiday and Dance to bring back to this wonderful venue a major national event for young dancers,” says Philip Wylie. 

Please direct your dance enquiries to Philip Wylie (, but tickets and registration are being undertaken by Stephen Holland (tel: 01772 703704 or email: 

Philip continues: “Undoubtedly the day will bring excellent Modern and Latin dancing to this new championship and there will be a warm welcome not only for teams but audience as well – we very much look forward to you being with us.”
