Spring Fling 2015 was held ...

Spring Fling 2015 was held over the weekend of April 17th to the 19th in Hounslow, London.

On the last day of Spring Fling a dance competition was held to choose a dance for the upcoming Book 50. In total, 46 dances from around the world were submitted and trialled, with 7 finalists chosen to be voted on by Spring Fling attendees.

The winning dance, shown here, was the culmination of many hours of devising, dancing and deliberation. It was danced by Spring Fling attendees who, after a long weekend of dancing, with a lot of energy spent (and sleep lost), were up for one more dance!
