A short summary of our project

Brighton Panthers Dance Society (BPDS) are looking to raise £2000 to pay for travels costs (to and from) two national dance competitions and costumes for all 43 of our dancers!

We plan to travel by coach to and from Bucks New University (competition 1) as it is a one day event, and drive ourselves to Loughborough University (competition 2) as it is a 2 day event.

Costumes are a extremely important element for us as they account for 10% of the marks given to each of our performances. It really can make this difference between 1st and 2nd place!

Who we are

Brighton Panthers Dance Society are one of the biggest sports teams at UoB, with around 70 members. This is our 8th year in action and we are ready for the exciting competition season ahead! We have 5 competitive squads in the following styles:

  • Jazz
  • Hip Hop
  • Contemporary
  • Wildcard
  • Tap

These squads are led by our 12 dance captains.

our story

This year we are hoping to maintain our title of 'best team spirit' and 'best social media presence' as well as coming home with 1st ,2nd and 3rd place trophies in the dance categories that we enter!

Competitions can be very expensive and as the society is run by students for students, we don't receive any central funding. 

Competitions are always the biggest events in our calendar and we spend most of the year preparing for this by auditions and producing original choreography. It is what our members look forward to most!

Your donations will make a massive impact by ensuring that we can get to the competition and secure points for costume by wearing something that truly represents the theme of our dances. 

Where will the money go?

Travel

Coach to and from Bucks New University - £500

Travel to and from Loughborough University - £70 x 15 cars = £1050

Costumes = £450

If we don't reach our target, we will allocate the fund to travel as this will take priority.

If we exceed the target, we will allocate the funds towards costumes for our end of year showcase, which will be held in Brighton for family, friends and the local community. 

Rewards

The following rewards, will be given to the respective donations. These are to show our gratitude for your generosity. Please note you can still donate if you don't want to receive the reward. We will contact you at a later date.
