Good evening dancers!
Apologies for the rather massive delay to my usual news update. I’ve been raring to go, but our scribe hasn’t been very well recently, and dolphin flippers aren’t great for typing!
Big things have happened since the last news update. We’ve had another three competitions for a start, at which we had some fabulous successes. Southern, UEA and SUDC were great days for all involved, and massive congratulations to everyone who participated. There are far too many successes across the two competitions to list here!
Key however, was the fact that the UEA Team trophy has come home with us for the fourth year running, and the incredible performance of our beginners team at SUDC.
And that was simply the start of competition season! Now we’re on the road to IVDC! Thanks to everyone for getting their entries in on time. Don’t forget that IVDC deposits are due on 17th March.
But of course, competitions aren’t the only big things going on. Ginger and I had a pretty big birthday this month. We turned 18 this year, so Sid planned a big birthday bash for us on! The nautical theme proved hilarious, with many dressed to impress! Including us! Nicola, our amazing Alumni Rep, worked up some new outfits for the occasion. It’s been a long time since Ginger was treated to a new dress, so she was very excited! Photos of the tailoring process will be along soon.
And now we’ve got two big shows coming up. Strictly Southampton 2016 is on Friday this week! AHHH! The dancers have been prepping for the better part of four months, and its set to be a pretty incredible show. Tickets are available through the box office, and through SUBLDS treasurer George Simmons. Tickets are £6 until Thursday 18th Feb. On the day of the show, they will only be available on the door for £7, so make sure you get in there quick for the early bird price!
Oh, and keep your eyes peeled for details on the famous Strictly after party!
Last, but by no means least, tickets are now on sale for Pure Dance! SUBLDS will be joining the rest of the SUSUPA Dance societies in a magical dance spectacular in the Turner Sims from 5th – 6th March, so get your tickets now! Prices range from £6 – £10 depending on whether you’re a student or PAU member!
I’m pretty sure that’s everything! Sorry for the whistlestop tour, but everything is so dang busy at the moment! Stay tuned as always for updates from your delightful dolphin buddies.
