About

We are back!  After two quiet years on the streets of Bakewell, we are so excited that the 18th Day of Dance will be held on Saturday 25 June, filling our picturesque town again with the music and dance from around the world. 

The Day heralds the start of Bakewell Carnival Week, there is a Farmers Market and with local well dressings on show, it is a day out not to miss, so join the several thousand people who travel from around the country to enjoy the dancing, colour and fun. 

This year up to 30 groups will be displaying dance styles from around the world at six outdoor venues from 11.00am to 4.30pm. Come and watch the displays, then join in and have a go!

You can travel the world with lively upbeat dances from Hollywood shows, American Line Dancing and the more traditional style from the Appalachian Mountains.  We are delighted to welcome back La Tierra Flamenco dancers as well as the very colourful Indian beats, who always put on such a brilliant show. Ballroom and Bollywood will be on offer along with a taste of Salsa from the Rueda Academy.  Old favourites such as Black Pig Border Morris and Timberline Steve who has drawn in the crowds for years with his precision line dancing group.  Watch out for the captivating Jose Oliva of Feel It and Dance, who will again be bringing his energetic dancers and entertaining us with some rhythmic Zumba numbers and maybe a flavour of Spanish too.  Joining in is a must with this one.  To add to the colour of the whole day, traditional British dances will be well represented with plenty of Morris and clog dancing. Hour long taster dance workshops will also be on offer at the Town Hall at £3.00 per workshop.  This year we’ve got Traditional French dance, irresistible Argentinian Tango and fun filled Lindy Hop.  All aimed at beginners and more experienced dancers.  Local dance team, Well Heeled Appalachian Dancers continue to host this event which draws so many people into the town and gives Bakewell a real buzz for the start their carnival week.

Bakewell Day of Dance is very much a community event involving local groups and interests.  There will be opportunities to join in and learn a few basics of the individual dances or you can just relax and enjoy the performances – and it’s all free!  Don’t be put off if it rains as there will be an alternative wet weather programme in the town hall from 12.00 am.

For further information about these and the rest of the day, visit our website.

The whole day will be rounded off in fine style with a ceilidh at Bakewell Town Hall, with music and calling provided by the ever popular Well Dressed Band. The international flavour of the day will continue here with some dances from around the world.  Proceeds of the evening will go to a Bakewell based charity supporting Rwandan people (www.thegobokarwandatrust.co.uk).
