Fri, 30 Sept|
Back once again- it's the renegade Smackdown! The only dance event worth putting in your calendar a year in advance, it's unstoppable, untameable, and undeniably the best time you'll have in Liverpool. With a new contest format and new ticket options, better tell yer ma, you're gonna be out late!
Time & Location

About The Event
We think Liverpool's boss and we can't wait to show you some of our favourite spots and have a dance. It's a big weekend, with:
- Three parties (Fri night, Sat night, Sunday afternoon) in three great venues
- Two classes and our Mersey Swing pub tour of Liverpool- all on the Saturday, all boss!
- One Smackdown- we're not saying it's the best competition out there… but we're not NOT saying that either… 😉😂
One pass - follow lead switch options choose your preferred role, and please dance in that role for 75% of the event
Couple pass - this should be a balanced couple of lead/follow
PAYA Pass (pay as you're able)- if costs might stop you attending, you can choose this option and pay whatever you're able, no questions asked. We release one of these tickets for every 10 full-price tickets sold so there may be a waiting list, but we'll do what we can. Register and send us an email to be added on the list.
Parents and Carers pass- if you're a parent, carer or someone who may not be able to attend a full weekend, we're offering the option to share a ticket. These tickets are the equivalent of one pass- so there can only be one of you in the room at a time. Send us an email when you register for more information.
We are also offering the option to pay a 50% deposit to secure your place to help spread the cost of the weekend.
If you've got any questions about Liverpool, or the event, get in touch and we'll help you out!

The Smackdown Contest
We’ve always had competitions at the Smackdown but this year is going to be a little different. There will only be one epic dance battle to see which team has got the best moves.
We’ll have rounds (the number will depend on how many teams sign up) and in each round, two teams will dance to a song chosen at random. The song definitely won’t be swing but how you dance is up to you! Teams can be 1-100 people, we don’t care, we just want you to show us what you’ve got.
The winners of each round will be decided by the audience and we’ll keep going until we have a winner.
We have a playlist that the songs will be picked from but groups can also throw one song into the mix. No guarantees that you’ll get to dance to your song though!
Examples of songs on the list to give you an idea of what to expect are -
Disco Inferno by The Trammps - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_sY2rjxq6M
Mama Said Knock You Out by LL Cool J - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vimZj8HW0Kg
If you’d like to enter a team, please email your team name and your song to email@example.com .
LET’S GET WEIRD!
