If you like organ music and/or ballroom dancing then The Blackpool Tower Ballroom is a must! Music non-stop from 10:00am until 17:00 for £7.50 and either dance or just sit and watch. A reasonably priced bar and delicious afternoon tea as well!

If you're a fan of Strictly Come Dancing you have to visit the Tower Ballroom during your stay. Lunchtime onwards is best - you can sit and enjoy a drink while watching couples dance around the floor to the music of the Whurlizer organMore

Do you have to dance to a selected dance (I.e if a waltz is played can you dance any waltz or is the dance named.and you must do that one?)

Depending on the number of people who are dancing, but I think you should be able to do any waltz unless it is specified it is a certain one.
