It’s here! Harrogate’s first-ever dance festival takes place this weekend at venues across town, including the magnificent Royal Hall.

This new three-day extravaganza created by dancers for dancers of all styles features star guests plus workshops and tea dances.

It’s all happeningfrom Friday to Sunday - tango, salsa, ballroom, jitterbug and more plus a visit by two stars of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing show - Pasha Kovalov and Katya Virshilas.

Harrogate Dance Festival weekend has been created by three Harrogate based community groups: White Diamond, Soiree Presents and Echo 42 Big Band.

These groups have a shared passion for the enjoyment and fun of dance and have combined their professional expertise to create this not-for-profit destination event.

There will be social dancing (ballroom and latin), a vintage fair including live swing music and dancing, Club Latino events with top Latin DJ’s, an elegant tea dance with 40’s singer Lilli de Carlo, amongst others.

The gala dance night will be this Saturday at the Royal Hall, where Harrogate’s own big band, Echo 42 will be performing as well as Strictly stars Pasha and Katya.
