This year, IVDC are holding a separate salsa competition! This will take place at the same time as Rock & Roll and Team Match so it is not recommended for anyone wishing to take part in those. Ex-students cannot compete in Team Match so we welcome you to do more dancing!
Venue: Winter Gardens, 97 Church St, Blackpool, FY1 1HL.
Salsa will take place in the Pavilion Theatre.
We normally stay in Blackpool on the Friday, compete on Saturday and return home on the Sunday. Some people visit the Blackpool Tower on the Sunday but this will be a separate event!
Full entry £25 (entry to Ballroom & Latin includes entry to Salsa)
Salsa only £20
Advanced Salsa On-1
Advanced Salsa On-2
Salsa formation event
All dancers in each Salsa Formation event must be members of their Member Society and they cannot be professional dancers.
Each Salsa Formation entry should be a total length of not more than 5 minutes, including time for music and setting up and clearing off the floor.
Any form of salsa or a mix of styles is permitted.
Entry deadline: 11th February at 11.59pm
There will be the annual Revs night but if you want to continue to salsa then there is another option!
For those looking for an after party, we have secured discounted entry (£16 instead of £20) for all IVDC competitors to 4 The Love of Dance’ s Salsa and Kizomba event at the Blackpool Tower which runs until 2.30am.
Couples may compete in either the Intermediate or Advanced categories. Couples may compete in both the On-1 and On-2 Advanced events.
There are no costume restrictions.
Lifts or acrobatic figures above waist-height are not permitted.
One half of each couple must be either a current student or an ex-student. The other half of the partnership can be anyone who is not a professional dancer.
