West Coast Swing events are back!

West Coast Swing events are back in the North of England in April, 2022.  Can you hardly wait for this? Because we can’t! 

Detonation Dance 2022 – West Coast Swing WSDC Registry event

Back with a bang in 2022 with the 9th edition of our springtime event Detonation Dance. Held in Manchester, UK. We welcome you to a weekend filled with West Coast Swing workshops, competitions and social dancing.

Detonation is the ideal WCS weekender for those wanting to try a competition based WCS event for the first time. Offering a warm and encouraging atmosphere. We hold a Newcomer J&J division to encourage new dancers to join in and the event is equally beneficial for Intermediate and Masters dancers who want to start getting experience with the spotlighted final format.

Team Challenge
It’s not all about the competitions… Get together to with your friends and form teams that will face 4 gruelling challenges though out the weekend.  All fun and no dancing in this experience which helps to bring everyone together in a friendly way. If you’re not participating in a team then you’ll yourself be creased up with laughter at the shenanigans that we set for the teams.

Workshops are suitable for everyone at Detonation. Whether you are new, or experienced in WCS, our instructors will guide you into the next stage of your development as a WCS dancer. We create a relaxed and intimate environment for Social Dancing so you can really let your hair down and let yourself dance.

Music is at the heart of all dance events. We take great care in our music selection to keep you dancing through the night. Continental breakfast starts from 5am so you can even go to breakfast and come back to dance.

On Saturday at the event we hold our World Swing Dance Council Jack & Jill contest for dancers in all divisions.   There are other fun J&J contest running over the weekend for you to enter too.

The hotel is a wonderful space for us to hold our event within. Many staff remember us and will welcome you into the bars and restaurants where we have a 20% discount.

See in you in April 2022,

Lee, Fab & The Detonation Team
