In the absence of having their own dance studio, Blackpool’s Comedy Carpet became the perfect rehearsal space for these dancers.

The group, who are from Utah Valley University, are in the resort to take part in the Blackpool Dance Festival at the Winter Gardens, which runs until Friday.

Paul Winkelman, director, said: “We are staying in a hotel while we’re here and don’t have access to a studio, so I went on an inspirational walk along the Promenade – and found this area!

“Blackpool is delightful.”

The dancers gathered at the Comedy Carpet to perfect their ballroom medley on Saturday.

One of the dancers, Ryan Jackson, 19, said: “This is a really special place. We’re not only here to compete, we just want to share what we do with everyone.”
