Happy Monday everyone!
This week we have an important announcement that we need you to all get on board and help us out with! We have been finalised in the Instant Impact competiton to win £2000 sponsorship!! We could see more free workshops, better quality space, bigger events - this will be invested directly into YOU, our members!
PLEASE, PLEASE VIEW THIS VIDEO: http ://youtu . be/Rim6IcIQ_GM, 'LIKE' it and SHARE to all your nearest/dearest/distant family and friends. It's a compliation of lots of footage, thanks to the amazing film maker Rajee, trying to answer the question 'Why is your society the best representation of your university?'. There are a lot of old and new faces involved, plus it acts as a nice little round up of dance society. Out of the 6 finalists, the video with the most views and likes will win! Please help us try!!
We're having an evening screening of last year's Bloomsbury Dance show: Unknown. Its a great chance for you to be inspired to audition, or to simply chill and have fun.
6-9pm, Cruciform B402 LT2, (event here: https://www . facebook . com/events/783939498330100/). See you there!
2. Wednesday/Saturday: IRISH TECHNIQUE WORKSHOPS
