Join in the Fun!

The UK Fun Competition is an informal and fun practice competition for starter, beginner and improver same-sex couples.

The event is intended to be a fun practice competition without the pressure of larger international competitions, it is therefore particularly suitable for starters, beginners and improvers--so find a partner and come have a go! There will be no B or A class in the Graded Ballroom & Latin competitions--couples are kindly requested not to enter in a competition in which they have previously competed in B class or higher (classifications in senior competitions excluded), however you may enter another competition in which you have not previously competed in the upper classes (ie. if you ordinarily dance B in Ballroom you may enter the Latin competition if you have not previously competed in B or A class). All dancers are welcome to enter the Fun Dance competitions (no classes).
