Harrogate Dance Festival Weekend
Sat 17th & Sun 18th May, 2014
Ever watched Strictly Come Dancing and wished you could do that to? well here is your chance with Harrogate Dance Festival 2014.
The Harrogate Dance Festival offers a weekend packed with workshops, master classes and events, celebrating popular dance past and present.
Following the success of last year The Harrogate Dance Festival is back in town and this time it promises to be bigger and better than last year!!
“This is not just an event for the seasoned dancer but for the beginner as well” says Artistic Director and founder James White. “This year we are opening the doors of The Royal Hall all day Saturday and offering FREE dance lessons to everyone who wants to come in. You don’t need a partner, just yourself and some enthusiasm to try”.
For the more experienced dancer we have 6 times UK Dance Champions Richard Still & Morgan Hemphill teaching on Saturday as well as top professional instructors Karen Byron, Andrew Thrower and Amy Pedder.
The Gala Dance Night at Harrogate’s splendid Royal Hall is undoubtedly the highlight of this fantastic festival. It will be more than a show, more than a dance, so expect a whole evening of live music and show dances as well as the opportunity to enjoy dancing in this historic venue.
The UK Dance Champions will be performing excerpts from their live show along side Britain’s Got Talent Semi finalists, AJ & Chloe, who will dazzle us with their fast paced Latin routines. “For this occasion The Royal Hall is returning to its former glory as a premier music and dance venue,” Harrogate’s own professional entertainment and events company, White Diamond Entertainment, will also feature performances, including, amongst others, a Charleston and an Argentine Tango. When Harrogate-based Echo 42 Big Band, with their singers, take to the stage, it will be time for the audience to sit back and enjoy the rich sound of a wide repertoire of live dance music or a chance to dance on the magnificent maple sprung floor of the Grand Hall.
Local based Choir, Rock Up & Sing, will also feature in the performance providing something special to partner our dance professionals.
So, whether you enjoy watching, listening or dancing, this will be a unique and special occasion.
From 7:30pm on Saturday 17th May 2014, the restored Royal Hall will resound to music and the floor of this historic setting will be yours to dance on. Seats are allocated with tickets and the whole floor of the Grand Hall will be available for dancing.
