Carnival atmosphere swept through Blackpool Tower Ballroom at a salsa night.
‘4 the love of dance’ brought in guest teacher DJ Mauricio Reyes, from Latin Motion, and DJ Gillian ‘Salsa Fix’ to raise the roof of the world famous ballroom on Saturday night.
Almost 1,000 dancers, from beginners to the very best, filled the dancefloor, so much so that the next event, scheduled for May 31, is due to spill into the Tower Circus to accommodate more dancers.
Organiser Helen Walker said: “Blackpool is the mecca for dancing.
“The ballroom has that sprung floor and everyone who’s danced there talks about the magic of it so it’s the venue that makes it all the hard work worthwhile.
“It was a real party, carnival atmosphere on the night, it went really well.”
Visitors from across the UK attended the event, dancing well into the small hours to Latin American salsa and zumba music.
