DDR:UK is not going away though, we shall be continuing to be us at the usual anime conventions and festivals that we attend. However we feel that moving forward, this change was needed.
Thank you again all for your support with DDR:UK and see you on the flip side!
DDR:UK will be making an announcement on the 2nd of April 2013 @ 8pm BST.
Keep an eye out on here, Facebook, Twitter and all other channels!
See you on the flip side!
Good evening all, this is just going to be a quick update to let everyone know that we have not gone away. We are just sorting things out behind the scenes, to get things back on track again.
We hope to start bringing you more information shortly on our up and coming events, and also start looking at some changes that could be happening around here.
I know we have not been the most communicative bunch of people as of late, however we hope to move on from this and to spice things up a tiny bit more.
Thank you all for being so patient with us, and catch you on the flip side!

The second of DDR:UK’s tournaments for the weekend, returns us back to our roots! The DDR:UK Dancing Stage Tournament! Kris has kindly offered to run and organise this, and this year we are running a few tests. The details are below:
We are running a free tournament for expert players at the MCM Expo on Saturday in an attempt to try out a new tournament layout. Registration starts at 11am and due to the new layout you can play the first set of songs straight away! So if you’re able to play on expert difficulty on Dance Dance Revolution why not step by and have a go just to see how far you can get? Come find Kris at the DDR:UK Stand for more details!
Finally, if you are interested in an open tournament using the ruleset from last October that works for people of every skill level, let Kris know on the stand and if there’s enough interest it will take place on sunday at the same time!

We need you! Yes you, not you, the other you!
We are fast approaching the London MCM Expo in May 2011, and we are looking for Volunteers to help out during the event. We are not looking for any one, we are looking for people who will be willing to put up with the extra workload that this will put on you, and understand that you may not have as much fun as you think you will. – It probably does not sell the part, but I have to be honest up front.
I will update this list as time goes along, as we may need more people than this initial list, but I will ensure to update the usual areas to ensure people know I have made an update.
So here is what we are currently looking for!
Area 1: Someone to record and film what happens on the stand. We have a number of tournaments and side events going along at the May Expo, and it would be great if we can get someone in to film what is going on. We already have a small video camera, however any additional help here would be great. We would try and get these on the website during the show, and/or get them up after she show as full pieces. One thing we do lack is video proof of what is going on during the day!
Area 2: People to cosplay characters from the games that we have on, to get more people to play, and to pose for photographs and such. It sounds very cheesy, but it would make the stand more interesting, and get people taking photos of the stand! – I am being selfish, but I would like to see more photographs of our stand actually in use. If allowed, I may try and get some flyers printed as well.
Area 3: After event reports, we are looking for help with some write ups on how you feel the event went for yourself, this doesn’t just have to apply to Expo, but for other events as well. Trying to see if we can get some more details on the website.
Area 4: Assistance with obtaining games and arcade parts for the stand, looking for new things for us to try. Additionally help with repair and maintenance of some of the machines, to try and get more up and running.
I will probably post more areas as the time goes along, so watch this space!
For anyone around the Birmingham area this weekend, DDR:UK will be attending Memorabilia for Saturday and Sunday this weekend at the Birmingham NEC, hosted by the crew that bought you the MCM Expo!
As always DDR:UK will put our best effort into bringing you a fun and exciting area to relax and play on one of our many games machines, including DDR:UK’s famous DanceDX machine and of course our wonderful Disney Mix will be making an appearance. Additionally to this we shall be bringing along a load of fighting games so hopefully you will not be bored.
Why not see if you can pop along and say hi!
More details about the event can be found on the Memorabilia Birmingham Website
Hopefully we will be able to please everyone as we strive to do at every event, however there have been some major changes within the DDR:UK locations and storage facilities in the last few months, so everything is in a bit of a shambles! Unfortunatly we will not be able to bring you a complete list of items that we will be bringing along due to this fact, however I will try and make an update while I am at Telford, with any major changes or issues.
We shall be bringing, however, our usual mash of DDR arcade machines, fighting games, rhythm action games, and if we can fit it in the hire van, Initial D too!
We would hope to see as many of you at the event as possible, and give us a poke if you are about.
