Musical Mashup

£25 per couple plus admission.


Number of places available in this category: 20 couples 

 

This category is about music and the ultimate challenge to test your versatility. This is all about using skills to adapt to whatever our Champs DJ throws at you. With 4 x 30 seconds of contrasting songs mashed together, you'll be tested on your ability to adapt to changes in genre, mood, tempo and style.

 

From slow to fast, swing to latin, disco to acoustic, challenging to upbeat - will you be able to change the flavour and style of your dance interpretation on the go? Expect anything from modern charts, swing, country, hip hop, Motown, acoustic, latin, blues, and SILC.
