It was emotional for us to be back at the iconic Blackpool Tower Ballroom for the first time in 3 years, seeing the stunning refurbishment to the dance floor and watching the Ballroom rocking once more. It was pure delight to see so many happy faces dancing again on this world-famous dance floor.
Friday evening was WOW, WOW WOW!… as 179 competitors took to the floor in WMJC’s ‘Dance for Ukraine’ fundraiser. A magnificent sum of £3160 has been raised so far which includes all donations.
The excitement throughout Saturday was plain to see as competitors stepped forward to meet their particular category challenge/s and enjoy the genuine warmth of support from everyone. Our MC, Tony Murphy, Head Judge, Melanie Boyle and competition DJ, Peter Flood ensured a smooth flow of the various competition rounds and our judges had the extremely difficult task in deciding the placements. The high standard of dancing was off the scale! We congratulate everyone who took up the challenge to compete and thank you once again for trusting the integrity of the competition.
So many people to thank for the slick running of the weekend – our WMJC Dream Team, who helped set up and decorate the ballroom, welcomed, banded, registered and were on hand throughout. The Judges watching competitors with the difficult task of scoring, the adjudicators, locked in the Tower all day, the fit runners delivering the scores to them, the DJ’s playing awesome music during freestyles, the photographer capturing all the action during the comps and awards photos. A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who came to WMJC 2022. We’re back next year 24-26 March 2023.
