West Coast Swing weekend 3 day festival event Detonation Dance, incorporating workshops, social dancing, competitions and shows. Held at the Manchester airport Hilton hotel on the last weekend of April. We welcome dancers from all over the world as well as having great support from the local dancers.
Detonation is one of the most inclusive events that you might attend. We hold a regional team battle to encourage an even playing field. Dancers of all levels come together and participate in 4 non dance based trails. Proved a fantastically fun addition last year and we can’t wait to show you what we have in store.
We hold Jack & Jill competitions at Detonation dance. On Friday we hold our All level Jackpot & Jill contest where dancers of all levels sign up and are drawn at random in one mass J&J division.
Saturday we hold our WSDC – World Swing Dance Council Jack & Jill competitions for dancers looking to accrue points in the global ranking system.
Sunday we plan to hold some alternative divisions such as a role reversed J&J and a switch J&J. If you’re not familiar with these concepts then you’ll have to attend to find out what they are all about.
