Whatever happened to disco?

It seems like it's impossible to find an adult disco class, as least here in the UK. Judging by the posts on this subforum a lot of others feel the same.

Has disco just fallen out of favour? Have we been swallowed up by a different genre? I'd love to do disco again, but it feels like no one's interested, or has even heard of it!

I would say freestyle disco has only increased in popularity and size over the past few years! But it has died on this forum for sure. If you are only using here to search I can see why you'd think that. But as a teacher of freestyle I know it has gotten so busy and popular - doing our competition list is becoming impossible as there are practically comps every week I want to do!

I'd ask around on facebook if anyone knows a school local to you, I find facebook has a huge disco community - groups, selling pages, etc.

Good luck x

I'm glad to hear things are alive and well, in that case! And don't worry, I've been googling like no one's business to try and find somewhere - not just searching here. xD I'm in Cardiff at the moment, so if anyone knows of any classes that'd be welcoming for adults around here, please do let me know! I'll be sure to have an extra look around on facebook - thanks for the suggestion. :)

Having been a member of this site for quite a few years
I have seen disco disappear from the threads here, Sadly it has moved on from here as I used to enjoy coming on here and catching up with friends from all over! Everyone has their own opinion about us but we don't bother any other dance skill but some feel the need to slate us 😞
Samsam24 I can see your still a new member & obviously has her/his own opinion by your ( maybe taken down a peg or two lol!)
freestyle is a very competitive sport to which we travel the length & breadth of Britain with fantastic friends all over and I'm sure there will be a school near you Spikeygal hope you find one and the joy of freestyle!
Happy dancing & huge good luck to everyone in 2016! 🍀🏆
