Big Spring Ball & Workshops Day : World Champions in Bath

Big Spring Ball & Workshops Day : World Champions in Bath

As followers of the Viva La Dance website, or dancers in our dance classes might already know, Saturday 4th May 2013 will see a big event for Ballroom & Latin dancers in the Southwest. We’ve worked very hard to put together a day of interesting, useful, & highly topical workshops, with a big dance for everyone to enjoy in the evening under the enormous roof of Bath’s Pavilion.

Saturday 4th May 2013

Not only that, but the Latin American workshops will be given by none other than two time and current World Latin American Champions, Neil Jones & Ekaterina Sokolova who represent the UK all over the world (see this short Youtube clip of them dancing Samba on the stairs at the January UK Internationals!).

World Latin Dance Champions ready to treat us all!

These two are a lovely young couple and if past experience is anything to go by they will be bringing with them not only their enormous experience and success, but some great fun and a bit of humour along the way.

This is a great opportunity to come and interact with the World Champions, and to take some useful teaching from them to improve your dancing. Make the most of it as they’re unlikely to be in Bath again in the near future!

James & Joanna will be putting us through our paces too!

The morning’s Ballroom workshops will be delivered by Bath’s very own teachers, James & Joanna Whitehead ISTD IDTA, from Viva La Dance, who have just been invited to lecture for the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance’ famous summer congress once again. The Ballroom workshops will focus on two very topical themes of Connection and Shape & Style, important ingredients for developing a better feel and look to the dance.

..and then the Big Spring Ball brings Bath dancing to life

After spending the day fine-tuning your dancing skills and picking up the latest style and refinements, you can put it all to good use and have fun at the big Spring Ball, a formal dance night with live music, cash bar, and, wait for it….., the fabulous cabaret of the World Champions up close. Dust off the formal evening wear (black tie or evening dresses), apply a little glamour and some dances shoes, then you’re off to the ball. This is the perfect way to finish the day. We’ll mostly be playing a wonderful mix of Ballroom & Latin American music, with a few of the famous sequence styles and maybe the odd surprise thrown in for good measure.

All of the information and on-line booking is now available on the Viva La Dance web-page here, and tickets are also available at our classes or other events if you plan to attend those.

We can’t wait for the big May day and hope you are free to make the most of it all too!
