Friday & Sunday Freestyles
Tell me about the pre and post competition party's
To get warmed up for the action or just to start your weekend off on the right foot, meet up with everyone at the Barry Memorial Hall on Friday night. As everyone descends on Barry, the freestyle is a great chance to catch up with friends from around the country and dance with some new acquaintances. See details below.
Equally, once you have that dancing bug we all know how hard it is to stop! Take your sunny's and catch breakfast and coffee on Barry Island Beach Sunday morning. Then on your way out of Wales, stop off at one of our Premier venues, the Lysaght Institute for the FLAVA tea dance. There will be tea and cake like you have never seen, gently getting you ready for the journey home.
