Colossus is the once yearly, mammoth freestyle event not to be missed hosting 650 dancers.

If you’re a dancer who loves to hear a great variety of music then this event will not only be a feast for your ears, but also a joy for your feet. In the huge Main Ballroom between 8.00pm and midnight we will be playing the very best of every genre of music including Swing, Latin, Pop, R&B and Funk at regular freestyles speeds. However if up-tempo makes you downhearted, we'll be playing chilled out UTOPIA sounds in the 2nd room and PURE Rhythm & Blues in th more intimate Forum Ballroom between 9.30pm & midnight.

After 3hours of sublime up-tempo freestyle in the main ballroom, the music twists at midnight and all the rooms converge as we slide seamlessly into our much loved UTOPIA format of delicious chilled-out tunes until 2.00am.
