Spring Fling Cambridge 2024

A weekend of dancing in the historic city of Cambridge

Spring Fling is a weekend of dance, organised by young people, for young people, supported by the Youth Services Committee. Each year the event is held in a different location and, in 2024, Cambridge will be the host city. Spring Fling is open to dancers aged 35 and under and all those attending can look forward to a fantastic weekend of dancing, socialising and making friends. Come and join the party!

On behalf of the Spring Fling 2024 Committee, we would like to invite you to Cambridge for this year's Spring Fling and Spring Fringe. We hope that you are looking forward to a weekend of music and dancing in the land of punting, academic gowns and Chelsea buns - and we can't wait to welcome you!
