SOAR BRITISH STREET DANCE CHAMPIONSHIPS 2020

QUALIFY AT ANY OF OUR 12 REGIONAL EVENTS TO COMPETE AT BRITISH CHAMPIONSHIPS!

We bring a fun-filled weekend of training workshops and competition for all dance abilities focusing on not only opportunities to compete but to perform and showcase their abilities as dancers of all ages.

Following on from our AMAZING British Championships this year we are going bigger and better in 2020!!
Further to our customer feedback regarding the Pontins accommodation and the fact that Pontins would not allow off site passes next year we have changed venue for 2020.  However we are so excited to be heading to BLACKPOOL and hosting our BRITISH 2020 at the iconic BLACKPOOL TOWER!!


Below are all the details you should require but if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to
email us at 
british@soardance.com  To secure your dance schools place please return the booking form ASAP!

Note to all previous March attendees

As you are already aware, on Saturday 14th March 2020 we made the extremely hard decision to postpone our Soar British Championships due to the Covid-19 global pandemic.  The health and welfare of our staff and customers has always been and remains our main priority.  Thank you so much for bearing with us and being so understanding as we worked through the rescheduling of this event.

If you need any help with transferring your previously booked hotels to this date please do not hesitate to ask, we are more than happy to send an email to help facilitate this.

All tickets already reserved have automatically been transferred across to the new date.  If unfortunately you cannot make this date or your numbers change please contact us via email at british@soardance.com and we will work through changing your booking and refunding people as quickly as possible. You have 14 days after the original event to claim your refund (12th April).

We hugely appreciate your support, this is a worrying time for the arts industry and the implications of this situation will be long lasting for us all. We would therefore be hugely grateful if you would kindly consider transferring your British tickets over to the rescheduled date or if this doesn’t suit one of our other events to support the future of SOAR.
