We would welcome entries from teams that are less than 8 dancers; please contact  (address, telephone number and email address on application form) for a price.
Children: £16 per team of up to 9 dancers plus a teacher. This includes £1 postage.

£8.50 each £5 for those in full-time education £2.50 for under-16s
The space available limits the number of dancers that can be accommodated. All evening dance tickets will therefore be on a “first come, first served” basis.
Wet weather arrangements

In the event of wet weather the afternoon dancing will be held indoors in two separate halls. Both venues will have live music. Gateways School has a performing arts centre with excellent spectator facilities. This will be used by the junior teams and any adult team accompanying a junior team. A full programme, including demonstrations, will be danced and music will be provided by Ian Slater.

All other teams will dance a full programme in the sports hall to Robert Whitehead and the Danelaw Dance Band.

Parking is freely available for both cars and coaches on site at the owner’s risk.


Gateways School has a restaurant which can provide reasonably priced lunches and evening meals if there are sufficient numbers. Please indicate on your application form if meals are required and approximate numbers. Please note that there are good changing facilities on the site for those who wish to stay between the afternoon event and the evening dance.

To add to the sociability of the occasion we would ask as many people as possible to dine with us.
Evening Arrangements

Unfortunately because of acoustic difficulties in the hall we will not be able to offer recaps for the dances.
