Strictly HABE! Congratulations
This weekend I danced at the world famous Winter Gardens in Blackpool for the 4th year running. The 'UKA National Ballroom and Latin Competition' is the highlight of our dance year.
Every ballroom dancer loves to perform at Blackpool, it's like our Wembley! People from all over the UK, Ireland and even across Europe come to compete.
I dance with JJ Dance Studios in Beckenham and around 60 of us including families, make the journey to perform and support.
My Latin dances included a Jive and a Cha Cha and reached the semi-final. In Ballroom I danced a Waltz and a Tango. I made it through to the final and placed 6th overall which I was very proud of.
This was my last year as a junior and I am looking forward to competing in the adult categories next year.
