    I don't normally do these posts after events but thought I would make an exception for this one and give a few shout outs as I didn't get around to doing the envelopes (I will make the effort next year I promise !!!!)

    Out of all the weekenders I have done over the past 15 odd years, this one has been by far my fave. Huge thanks to Glenn Ball, John Armstrong-Holmes and the JA team for creating the concept and running this event. The pro shows were off the scale.

    Looking forward to next year !!!

  • What a weekend! Had some great dances, watched some great dances, ate good food, made some new friends, catched up with old friends and had a good old party!  Special thank you to the pro's who didn't stop dancing with us all and being so welcoming and inspiring ☺️
