    The weekend was absolutely wonderful with such a great social atmosphere, challenges that really encouraged growth and led to the most fun uplifting teamwork after class which had the cool side effect of the styling class actually sticking with you for once. At the parties, divisions felt basically non present, everyone was getting on so well with eachother and getting to dance with you and everyone else was absolutely wonderful.
    I am absolutely exhausted but so happy how the weekend turned out, can't wait for next year :D

  • The UK WCS Championships is a major event in this environment and after 11 years, it loses nothing of its richness because thanks to its promoter John Armstrong-Holmes, who seeks all the time to renew itself, he proposes to everyone the same thing, to share His passion for WCS.
