On the 21st February UCLan’s dance club competed in a dance competition at Nottingham Trent. The competition involved 300 students from 13 universities. They certainly proved that UCLan can do it by bringing back 12 trophies and placing in nearly every category.
They were awarded 1st place in Novice Jazz, Advanced Jazz, Advanced Contemporary and the Wildcard category, 2nd place in Advanced Tap and 3rd place in Novice Ballet, Novice Hip Hop and Advanced Ballet. Best costume, Best Team Spirit, Best Overall Club and Best Female of the day were also awarded to the team.
Zoe Chambers, winner of Best Female of the day told Pluto; “the club right now is absolutely buzzing… nobody can believe how well we did on Saturday and the atmosphere is fantastic”.
When talking about her personal win, Chambers stated; “I still can’t believe it! There were so many talented female dancers there on Saturday and for me to be chosen out of all of them is just amazing. I still get quite emotional thinking about it”.
The UCLan Dance Club are certainly ones to keep an eye on.
You can catch them next at the UCLan Dance Competition at STFSC on Sunday 1st March at 9.30am.
