So I’ve always wanted to be a princess how about you?


Classical Sequence which used to be known as Old Time reflects the types of dance being performed in ballrooms across the land, as long ago as the 17th Century. It’s the ultimate to be a princes/prince dance.

The original dances performed in this genre (see I’m even talking posh know) include Polkas, Mazurkas, Gavottes, Minuets, Old Time Waltz, Two-steps, One-steps etc. but over the years it has grown to know include Tangos, Saunters, Blues, Swings and other related dances.

This form of dance is a style whereby dances are performed “in sequence” as the name suggests. The steps are arranged in such a way that everybody is dancing the same steps at the same time, usually to either 16 bars of music. (Great if you a princess like me with a bad memory).

No seriously this is a lovely style of dance to learn and fits well in the current trend of Vintage. As we are situated in Blackpool, Classical Sequence (Old Time) is a great style to learn as it very popular in the Blackpool Tower Ballroom.

If you have always wanted to dance like a princess or indeed with a princess then this is the style for you. With all it’s elegance and charm you feel your dancing with your own Miss Emma or Mr Darcy.
