Illumination Dance





Count down’s to our next night at both venue in Cambridge & St Albans…


What is ‘Illumination Dance’

Illumination Dance is a new concept for the Cambridge & St Albans, Bedworth, Harlow & Leicester area’s where we aim to play music which teases your inner dancer to come out.
You could be someone at any stage of your dancing that is no longer satisfied dancing with the mainstream music you hear regularly in modern jive.
You may be looking for something a little more chilled, lyrical or expressive, enabling you to dance more musically to what you hear.
You might want to fuse your modern jive with other styles, such as WCS, Tango and Blues, letting you vary your mood throughout the evening.
You could even just be hoping to finish a dance and be able to say to your partner “wow I didn’t know I could dance like that”.
If any of these descriptions sound close then Illumination Dance is the place for you to come and dance.  We welcome dancers that want to explore musical expression, and enjoy music that is always interesting and occasionally challenging.  You’ll find dancers of all levels of experience and ability, with the common aim that they enjoy dancing to good music.

Just to set some expectations for the future.

The illuminations events aim to give you more ‘interesting’  music,   of a variety of genres and tempos, allowing you to find lots of things in the music to play within your dancing.

I trust that most if not all of the people over the last few freestyles came along with that intention in mind, and from chatting to many of you at the end of the night I think that we managed to tickle the musical taste buds and set up a view of what will come in the future.
I did also speak to some that were perhaps looking for a more ‘regular’ MJ night, based on up-tempo music with a more metronomic beat.

This is not our aim so if this is what you enjoy best there are a   wide variety of franchised and independent operators already serving that customer base, and while we’d always love to see     you at Illuminations we’d not want to entice you along on false pretences.

Wherever you dance in the future – enjoy

Come off the M11 north bound, turn right at the top of the slip road, continue forward till you get to the park and ride traffic lights ( aprox 100m), just beyond is a 2nd set of lights, turn left and as the road bears left (aprox 50m) turn right and follow the road in about 100m you will see Sainsbury’s carpark on the left.. (Do not park in the multi story as it closes at 10.30pm) the next building on the right is the venue. there are a set of barriers, and you can park before them or drive through and park up by the venue.. if there is no parking at the venue, park in the park and ride and its a quick walk…
