MOVE IT 2018

Move It London

Last Friday, our team travelled down to London for MOVE IT 2018. The Excel was overwhelmingly packed with stalls and dancers alike - it was hard not to be distracted by people breaking out popping in the aisles! There was the usual Main Stage showcasing the latest talent from UK dance colleges and dance celebs like Aston Merrygold, a Freestyle Stage inviting confident dancers up to show off their stuff, a Showcase Theatre Stage, an Acropad, and constant fitness classes with Move Fit like Boogie Bounce. The room was full of colleges and dance suppliers bustling for attention from budding dancers and new applicant hopefuls. Gorgeous glitter, crops and a whole load of makeup was the presiding sight this year - sounds like a dancer's dream, right?! 

We were astounded by the amount of dance talent in the room last Friday and couldn't resist in scouting a few new models - you may see their fresh new faces on the site in coming months. We stood in awe watching show after show on the Main Stage, wondering which dancers we'll see on our TV screens in coming years. 

Our marketing team went to dance classes with some specialists from the industry. We've got some footage of our marketing team funking out to Little Mix with London Studio Centre that we may release on a rainy day (if you're lucky)! We also got some insider tips from the leaders of the Acrobatic Dance course that we'll be releasing later in the year. For our younger dancers reading this who are working towards sitting their Dance GCSE, we've got some invaluable tips coming your way to help you succeed in your dance exam straight from McGregor's team. For now though, scroll down to see the summary of our day at Move It 2018.
