Illumination Dance (Cambridge) 22nd Feb 2020
Illumination, Expressive freestyle. Storey’s Field Centre, Cambridge
Two-room expressive and regular Modern Jive freestyle coming to Cambridge on 27th September.
Following the success of our first freestyle collaboration with Jive4All, we are excited to announce that we will be running Illumination plus Jive4All from now on.
Illumination plus Jive4All is a two-room freestyle, featuring a main expressive style room run by DanceXcess plus an added up-tempo room run by the friendly and inclusive Jive4All team, ideal for those who love to dance to both music styles and perfect for those new to expressive dancing who want to give it a try in a friendly and welcoming environment.
As from 10th August 2019, we joined forces with local independent dance club to DanceXcess called Jive4All, adding an up-tempo room to our regular expressive freestyle, ‘Illumination’ at Storey’s Field Centre, Cambridge. The event was very popular, with high volumes of dancers in both rooms throughout the evening. We received some very positive feedback from dancers who attended the event:
“Was a great night, well worth the drive, looking forward to next time”
“Great first time for me but well worth the 140-mile round trip, can’t wait to do it again”
“2 rooms worked great and hope it can be done again “
We had dancers from London, Farnborough, the Midlands, Kent, Norwich, and Ipswich, plus all our local dancers.
Location: Storey’s Field Centre, Eddington Avenue, Cambridge CB3 1AA
Date: 27th September 2019
Time: 20.00 until midnight
Price: £10. Buy at the door with cash on entry.
More about Illumination Dance:
Illumination Dance is a new concept for the Cambridge and St Albans, Bedworth, Harlow and Leicester areas where we aim to play music which teases your inner dancer to come out. You may be looking for something a little more chilled, lyrical or expressive, enabling you to dance more musically to what you hear. 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.

More about Jive4All:
Cambridge not-for-profit Modern Jive club Jive4All explicitly promotes an inclusive culture, and we encourage our members to make everyone feel welcome. As such the culture is to accept any dance as long as you feel comfortable. Equally, we believe that a dancer’s gender is not relevant to their choice of dance role: core to our ethos is that you choose whether you learn to lead, follow, or both!

We hope to see you there!
Much dance love,
The Jive4All committee & Illumination Dance.
BIO: Illumination Dance
brings a different concept in dance for the Cambridge area with our Illumination (Light) Expressive Freestyle. Our aim is to give our dancers a range of music, of a variety of genres and tempos, which teases out that more expressive dancer that is deep inside all of us.
• 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 freestyles.
• 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 may be looking for music that is a little more chilled, or perhaps more lyrical or expressive, giving you the backdrop to dance more ‘musically’ to what you hear.
• 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 to what you’ve thought to yourself or said to others, then Illumination Dance is the place for you and your friends to come and dance. At our events, you’ll find dancers of all levels of experience and ability, who share a common wish to express themselves in dancing to music that is always interesting and occasionally challenging.
