Our main aim in creating the UTOPIA experience is to encourage more dancers into the Chill-Out/Blues dance environment. This can often be a daunting prospect for anyone on the periphery, which is why we also run regular UTOPIA Academy workshops and classes to help build confidence.


Workshops are updated on a regular basis and, in addition, many of our freestyle events commence with a specialist dance class. This program of teaching has recently been enhanced by the SILC format introduced in 2015. This style of dance is based on technique and connection. As such it fits perfectly into the format of our events and the music we play.

Upcoming Utopia Academy workshops:
