Smackdown 2023

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. Better tell yer ma, you're gonna be out late!

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… 😉😂


Friday Evening - Stanley Theatre, Liverpool Guild of Students, 160 Mount Pleasant, Liverpool L3 5TR

Saturday Daytime Classes - Liverpool Arts Bar Studios, 22 Hope St, Liverpool L1 9BY

Saturday Evening - Liverpool Masonic Hall, 22 Hope St, Liverpool L1 9BY

Sunday Afternoon - Lark Lane Police Station, 80 Lark Lane, Liverpool, L17 8UU


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!

Classes (not your usual Lindy Weekend Classes!) 

Morning Graffiti class. We have limited spaces on this workshop where we will make a fantastic mural at Zap Graffiti! 

Tap with Sole Rebel 

African Dance with Ithalia Johnson 

The Smackdown

We’ve always had competitions at the Smackdown but this year is going to be a little different. No competition, just a showcase of how awesome you all are! If you have a routine you've been working on and would like to show off, let us know and we'll put you/your group in the line up.
