Performers' joy after returning to Blackpool Dance Festival
Two dancers have told of a "once in a lifetime" experience after a global tournament resumed for the first time in three years.
Blackpool Dance Festival started in 1920 and hosts events including the British Open Championships across 13 days.
Mia Lennik-Holden, 19, and Andrei Toader, 20, both from Middleton, were among the dancers competing at the town's Winter Gardens.
Ms Lennik-Holden described the tournament as "unreal" and performing in Blackpool was "something every dancer should experience".
