Thank you everyone!

John and Afra would like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in this year’s festival:

  • Our inspiring instructors who taught excellent workshops and gave us a truly magnificent Gala Show.
  • Our delegates who provided us with a wonderful Showcase on Friday night and were such great people to party with!
  • Our team of helpers without whom the event would not run half as smoothly as it did this year.

It was a fantastic weekend and I think it’s fair to say that all of us had a brilliant time!

Save the date – 23rd October to 25th October 2015!

Celebrating Dance 2015 will be our 15th Birthday and we are planning some super
things to make it a very special event – watch this space for more details!

Tickets are on sale now!

The countdown starts here!

It’s just 26 days until the festival and things are starting to hot up behind the scenes. John and I have both had a very difficult time of things health-wise this year so we have got behind with some important tasks, but don’t worry we are catching up very quickly . As the old saying goes ~ “it’ll be alright on the night!” 🙂

Tickets are currently being prepared and will be posted out in batches as soon as they are ready, so watch out for yours to pop through your letterbox very soon. Don’t want to wait for the post? Remember that you can always request an e-Ticket to be emailed to you. Just drop us a line on Facebook or send a request by email to

As tickets are being processed we have noticed that a few of you have not yet submitted your workshop booking form. We will be posting out forms this week but again, if you don’t wish to wait, you can download the forms from our website – or ask us to email them to you.

Please note that all booking forms and showcase applications
must be posted to us.

We’ve had a lot of technical issues this year so if you submitted booking forms via email, it is extremely unlikely that we received it. If you are concerned that we have not received your forms please get in touch as soon as possible so that we can check our records.

Delegate Showcase – Tickets take priority but during the week Afra will begin publishing the list of performers who have a spot in the Showcase. The list will be updated regularly as Afra processes the forms. Don’t panic if your name isn’t among the first published – there are a lot of applications! 😉  Judging by what Afra has seen so far, it looks like we have an exciting and entertaining showcase to look forward to! 🙂

Not booked yet?  We still have a few rooms available for late bookings, so you can still buy a ticket if you want to but you need to book as soon as possible. We are also still taking bookings for local dancers.

As the festival draws near, we are starting to get excited as we look forward to catching up with regular delegates and also getting to know those of you who are attending for the first time. We pride ourselves on the friendly, non-competitive atmosphere and we are always available over the weekend if you have any questions or if you want to have a chat. Don’t be shy, come and say hello! 🙂

See you next month!

Afra & John
