A great opening night at St Albans and our 2nd night at Cambridge. It was Good to see so many join us on the dance floor and always a pleasure to see people enjoying the music and dancing the night away.
Just to set some expectations for the future.
The illuminations events aim to give you more ‘interesting’ music, of a variety of genres and tempos, allowing you to find lots of things in the music to play within your dancing.
I trust that most if not all of the people over the last few freestyles came along with that intention in mind, and from chatting to many of you at the end of the night I think that we managed to tickle the musical taste buds and set up a view of what will come in the future.
I did also speak to some that were perhaps looking for a more ‘regular’ MJ night, based on up-tempo music with a more metronomic beat. This is not our aim so if this is what you enjoy best there are a wide variety of franchised and independent operators already serving that customer base, and while we’d always love to see you at Illuminations we’d not want to entice you along on false pretences.
Wherever you dance in the future — enjoy
Illumination Dance is one of the first Pure Expressive freestyles in the contry which started around 5 years ago, but originaly was called Expressions which was recently re-branded to Illumination Dance.
Illumination Dance is a new concept for the Cambridge, St Albans and Leicester areas where we aim to play music which teases your inner dancer to come out.
You could be someone at any stage of your dancing that is no longer satisfied dancing with the mainstream music you hear regularly in modern jive.
You may be looking for something a little more chilled, lyrical orexpressive, enabling you to dance more musically to what you hear.
You might want to fuse your modern jive with other styles, such as WCS, Tango and Blues, letting you vary your mood throughout the evening.
You could even just be hoping to finish a dance and be able to say to your partner “wow I didn’t know I could dance like that”.
If any of these descriptions sound close then Illumination Dance is the place for you to come and dance. We welcome dancers that want to explore musical expression, and enjoy music that is always interesting and occasionally challenging. You’ll find dancers of all levels of experience and ability, with the common aim that they enjoy dancing to good music.
