Blackpool isn't impressive by day - looks very run down and unloved - or did when I was last there a few years ago. I expect it looks fine at night when the illuminations are on - if you like that sort of thing.
The ballroom though is glorious - sprung floor, organs that pop u and down or back and forth depending on the model when one organ player takes a rest and the other takes over, intricate decoration and good acoustics. We took the opportunity to spend a few hours at a Sunday tea dance and loved it but blimey, some of the couples are aggressive about the floor space in dances like the cha-cha and rumba. Nearly had my chin clocked a couple of times.
Loved the sequence dancing. We don't get that in Belgium but we do have line dancing instead and not just country. There's Irish, Greek, twist, samba, cha-cha, tango, waltz, polka, merengue, cumbia, reggae, rock and more.
