History of the BRRF

The BRRF was formed in 2008 by a group of enthusiastic rock 'n' roll dancers, many of whom were past or present members of the Cambridge University Rock 'n' Roll Dance Team.

The founders had enjoyed success on the UK University open Rock 'n' Roll competition circuit, but aspired to make links with their European (and international) counterparts. After several "training camps" with international coaches they were happy to discover that not only was it feasible for UK dancers to compete in international competitions, but that there were (and are) many coaches and dance couples from other countries willing and ready to lend a hand in helping them to achieve their ambition.

In December 2006, after representing the UK unofficially for the first time ever in a major rock 'n' roll competition, the dancers were so pleased with the welcoming reception they received that they decided to work towards formally establishing a UK federation.

The BRRF saw its first couple officially represent the UK, one year after its establishment, at the Letensky Cup in Prague, October 2009. The UK has since been represented at a number of European B Class Cup competitions.

The BRRF hopes that you find these web resources useful and hopes that you have been inspired to take up this sport. There is a lot of work to do before our couples can be amongst the best in the world, but we believe that forming the BRRF has taken the first steps towards achieving this goal.

We have set up the BRRF and this website using our own resources. If you would like to help the development of the British rock 'n' roll dancing movement by sponsoring us, please contact us.
