Blackpool has always been synonymous with ballroom dancing. Now, for the first time ever, this fabulous world has agreed to swing its doors open. Blackpool’s Ballroom Battle will give remarkable insight and access during the Blackpool Dance Festival (1×60’). Made by Little Dooley, it will waltz its way onto BBC One and iPlayer later in 2022.
Blackpool’s Ballroom Dancing Battle
Featuring Blackpool in all its glory, Blackpool’s Ballroom Battle is a tribute to a world where dreams are made and broken every year. Filmed in the dazzling Empress Ballroom, where what happens on the dancefloor doesn’t always stay on the dancefloor…
This year, thousands of sequined dancers from more than 40 countries will descend on Blackpool for the legendary Dance Festival. The cameras zoom in on some of the competitors, and you’ll see the real-life tears, tribulations and triumphs. The glitz and the glamour of this truly global, high-octane event. The passion couldn’t be greater, or the stakes higher.
For almost 100 years it’s been one of Britain’s best kept secrets. Dancers have followed their dreams to Blackpool and placed their hopes and ambitions in winning the coveted title of the British Open Champion. Now you’ll be able to quickstep into their extraordinary world. Glimpse first-hand exactly what it takes to become the very best.
Meet some of the larger-than-life personalities, influential players, trainers and coaches of ballroom. The show will reveal the inside story of life behind the scenes, within this unique and little-known culture of competitive ballroom.
Broadcast details will be confirmed in due course.
