More exciting events and workshops have been unveiled for the first-ever Harrogate Dance Festival.

For dance enthusiasts whether their passion is the tango, a salsa, ballroom or 1940’s jitterbug, the Dance Weekend has an extensive and varied workshop program to extend your technique and style those moves.

Running from June 28-30 at various venues across Harrogate, the teachers on hand even include a couple of stars of BBC TV’s Strictly Come Dancing series.

Three top teachers from the Imperial Society for Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) will be running ballroom workshops all day on Saturday, June 29 and Sunday, June 30.

The ballroom workshops include Strictly Stars Pasha Kovalov and Katya Virshilas who will be teaching in the Promenade Ballroom for a limited number of dancers at The Cairn Hotel.

Club Latino is the festival’s salsa and Latin section at The Crown Hotel and Carim Hotel.

It will feature a pre-party on Friday, June 23 , all-day dance workshops on Saturday, June 29 with the UK’s finest Latin instructors,plus a gala salsa night on Saturday evening featuring top salsa DJs and dance performers.

Organisers say the easiest way to make the most of the experience, is to get either a Ballroom Workshop Pass which entitles dance fans to go to all/any weekend ballroom workshops or get a Club Latino Workshop Pass which entitles dance fans to go to all/any of the Club Latino workshops.
