The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) has moved from its usual Blackpool Tower Ballroom setting to re-locate its 2011 Blackpool Grand Finals in the Winter Gardens Empress Ballroom this weekend.

The new venue offers more seating, more space, a separate practice area, a huge floor for the competitions and a much warmer environment for participants.

The Grand Dance will take place on Saturday night – and is open to all.

This year it includes world class demonstrators Maurizio Vescovo and Andra Vaidilaite and features music by the Empress Dance Orchestra with musical director Ashley Frohlick.

The Modern Ballroom and Latin Grand Finals are now in their 12th year and, along with the Sequence Grand Finals, continue to attract increasing numbers each year.

A one-day ticket is £20, two-day tickets are £30 and tickets for the Saturday Dance are £10 (available on the door). For further event information contact (01795) 521305 or email
