Brooks Dance Academy, based in Lancing, West Sussex, has qualified for the Dance World Cup Finals taking place in England this July 2021. We are currently seeking support and community donations towards the cost of the trip.
Open to all dancers from non-state run schools, the Dance World Cup is the greatest all-genre dance competition in the world with 62 participating countries and 120,000 competitors. The event itself is also live streamed to global audiences on all devices.
Categories we will be competing in (after qualifying as top 3 in the country) include: Children's Contemporary/Lyrical Duet, Children's Contemporary Large Group, Children's Show Dance Small Group, Children's Jazz Large Group, Children's Jazz/Show Dance Small Group, Junior Contemporary Small Group, Junior Lyrical Small Group, Junior Contemporary Large Group, Junior Lyrical Large Group.
A total of 32 pupils age 9-17 will be performing ten dances at the Dance World Cup Finals later this year. Patrons of the event include some of biggest names in the industry: Arlene Phillips, Wayne Sleep and Debbie Moore, founder of Pineapple Dance Studios. We are so excited to have the chance to represent our country at this event, however the cost of attending is very high!
Our pupils, families and teachers are fundraising and asking for kind donations towards costumes, entry fees, event fees, extra rehearsal costs, team kits, travel and accommodation. Any help you can give to the team to help subside some of the expenses involved will be hugely appreciated.
We also have a range of corporate sponsorship packages which provide the opportunity for brands to support our dancers via logos on our flags, social media or our website. Dancers travelling to the Dance World Cup Finals traditionally seek sponsorship from local and national companies to help fund the team kit and / or the trip itself. We welcome sponsorship of any amount, but also have a couple of corporate sponsorship packages in our rewards section of the page!
A BIG THANK YOU to our headline commercial sponsors who have sponsored our Team Kits for this year and have already helped to support to our trip:
Institute of Contemporary Theatre: Brighton, The Brighton Academy & Lewis and Co Planning.
