Event description

Description

An epic weekend dedicated to throwing down hard and fast. This weekend is all about the art of competing, featuring the London Jitterbug Championships and also the slightly more informal (but just as heated!) London Throwdown Championships.

We’re also hosting a mini array of workshops from our all-star London teaching team with a later start so you have the chance to party til the early hours. There will be plenty of time for social dancing to the live bands as we’ll be using two of the fantastic halls at the Bishopsgate Institute, so if you don’t fancy watching all the competitions there’ll always be somewhere you can swing out!
