If you've ever had anything to do with ballroom or Latin dancing or if you're a fan of Strictly Come Dancing, you might be aware that the Blackpool Dance Festival is going on right now. For competitors in ballroom and Latin, it's pretty much the biggest event of the year, with dancers descending on the beachfront town of Blackpool from countries all over the world. Hundreds if not thousands of couples in a wide range of age groups will compete against each other in a number of categories as will a fair number of students who will dance with their teachers. It's a pretty big deal for so many, whether they compete on the open circuit, dance as a hobby like I do or simply love to watch. I'm sad to be missing most of it this year. In fact, I've never been for the May festival, but I'll be catching one night of the action next week and I can't wait! I had the chance to dance at the famed Winter Gardens last year in a different competition, so I know I can look forward to the beautiful venue and I actually love the kitschy, seaside charm of Blackpool. Until then, I'm wearing this Latin dance-inspired tasseled skirt and cheering on my favourites in spirit, stalking Instagram to see all the glitz and glamour from afar.

In the event that any of you would like to see what all the fuss is about, you can watch the Blackpool Dance Festival online with a subscription to DSI TV. It's a bit pricey to be honest, but it's cheaper than going there. Click here for more information.
