Any Strictly Come Dancing Fans out there? Help Bristol University send all their ballroom and Latin dancers to compete in Blackpool in Feb!

 Hi everyone!

We are the Bristol University Latin American and Ballroom Dance Society (or BULABDS, which is slightly catchier!) and we have been one of the top 5 university dance societies in the country for the last 30 years. Achieving this involves competeing in the National competition that takes place every February in Blackpool, and we have consistently taken over 100 of our members to compete and enjoy one of the best weekends of the year. 

Usually we are able to subsidise the cost of the weekend so that all of our memebers are able to go - however, what with room bookings and beautiful costumes (which you can see from our photo) getting more expensive, it is now much harder to decrease the price that our dancers must pay to go to Blackpool. 

This is why we need your help! Even just a little bit of extra funding could make the difference for one dancer, and their success could make the difference to us as a society and therefore also to Bristol as a university. 

We teach both students and non-students how to dance to a high level, so if you happen to live in Bristol and fancy getting your glamour on then we will welcome you! 

Thank you and keeeep dancing! 


(Also the video features our current best couple who won Advanced Latin at Blackpool in 2014 - the girl in the pink dress and the boy in black who are shown right at the beginning!)
