Dignity, endurance and how much you will invest to win.

Influenced by ‘They shoot horses don’t they’, Sydney Pollack’s film of the novel by Horace McCoy.

Talent has a competitive edge, a play on judgement and judge’s verdicts, TV talent shows and the rivalry of contestants who desperately need to win whilst battling to retain their composure and a dash of glamour.

A dynamic and colourful range of ballroom styles take the floor.

The dancers invested a huge amount of energy and commitment to the piece and all made it to the end. Though it’s hard to say who won.
