Bristol Come Dancing 2020 – Dance For Your Lives
**404 Dancers Not Found**
COVID – 19 UPDATE: In light of the recent Covid-19 pandemic, it is with heavy hearts that we have come to the decision to postpone Bristol Come Dancing. It’s important that we act responsibly and take advice from the World Health Organisation seriously to take care of you, those close to you, and our wider communities. Our plan is to reschedule the event to a future date. By that point, we’ll be grateful to all come together and celebrate by helping those in need. Your tickets will be valid for the rescheduled event and we will update you when we know what this date will be. We will keep in touch regarding a new date for Bristol Come Dancing.
Ticket holders should refer to the e-mail sent out via Eventbrite for further information.
Back by popular demand, Bristol Come Dancing is rising from its sequinned stupor, to revive the positivity-infused fundraising collaboration between Aid Box Community, Temwa, For The Love and YOU!
Think Strictly, but with a thoroughly Bristol edge…
WHEN: Saturday 28th March 2020
TIME: 7pm – Midnight
WHERE: Area 404 (126 Albert Road, Bristol, BS2 0YA)
TICKETS: £20 General Admission
WHAT: A charity dance competition like no other…
* TICKETS ON SALE FROM WEDNESDAY 4TH MARCH*
An incredible group of people are bravely taking part in 6 weeks of dance training, learning two routines in Tango and Musical Theatre, ready for a live performance at Boomtown‘s Area 404, in front of a live audience and panel of judges.
The couples will be going head to head (or cheek to cheek) in the ultimate charity dance off, to compete for the title of Bristol Come Dancing Champions of 2020.
As well a series of awesome dances from the participants, we’ll be treated to some great entertainment from stilt walkers and a professional dance troop to Bristol’s RnB Choir and DJs to close the evening! Expect a raucously glitzy night of hope restoring fun in aid of raising life changing funds for Temwa and Aid Box Community.
Simply by being there you’ll be making a difference! Thank you!
Temwa – @TemwaUK – www.temwa.org

What unites the two charities is bringing people together, supporting and welcoming the world’s communities… it’s amazing what can happen #WhenCommunitiesComeTogether
Your hosts for the evening
We’re SO lucky to have two fantastic comperes guiding you through the night’s happenings!
Fresh out of another realm comes Carmen Monoxide, a singer-producer who breathes a noxious concoction of sultry and satirical into every performance.
“I cannot wait! This is gonna be a Bristol hoedown throwdown to remember!” – Carmen Monoxide
Lottie Ball is a dance and movement psychotherapist and group facilitator, and runs Get Free Dance Therapy here in Bristol. She is an all round inspiring performer and bringer of positive vibes!
“Because LOVE IS THE ANSWER. Let’s get together and make a difference. And dance and cheer and show the world we care.” Lottie Ball
The Dance Teachers
This year’s participants have been learning from two of Bristol’s favourite dance teachers; Tannith Perry of Easton Social Dancing who has been teaching Tango and Angie Edwards of AE Dance + Fitness who has been teaching musical theatre! They run regular classes in Bristol across various different styles, for complete beginners and people with more experience… so check out their classes if you’ve been inspired!
Step into the dystopian dreamscape of AREA 404…
Big thanks go to Boomtown for their support this year! We’re excited to be hosting this year’s event in their new Bristol venue, Area 404! An unusual warehouse space adorned with the same style of set and decor as is seen at the festival each year… this will bring the Bristol edge, for sure.
