Modern Jive at the Blackpool Tower Ballroom

The World Modern Jive Championships (WMJC) takes place in the stunning Blackpool Tower Ballroom each year.

We kick off the exciting weekend with a warm-up freestyle Friday, followed by a just-for-fun ‘Battle of the Sexes’ competition where ladies lead ladies and the guys lead guys.

The prestigious competition (and the real fun!) begins on Saturday, with a range of categories to cover all styles of Modern Jive (doors open at 9.30am). This is followed by the Awards Ceremony in the evening. Just in case you haven’t had enough dancing, our After Party starts immediately after the awards, with freestyle dancing continuing until 2am.

After an action-packed Saturday, we have a Sunday ‘chill-down’ freestyle, where we take over the Blackpool Tower Ballroom once again for an afternoon dancing to more fantastic Modern Jive tunes.

WMJC-Blackpool 2018 is going ahead

We understand people's concerns about the weather and are continually monitoring the situation. We're told Blackpool and surrounding area is currently a snow free zone and expected to remain so. Indications also are that motorways/main roads are flowing reasonably well in most parts of the Country.

Obviously, we want everyone to travel safely and allow good time in making the journey to the Blackpool Tower.
