• Applied to the Alumni Foundation in May 2013
• Awarded £400
The Alumni Foundation were delighted to be able to award Dancesport Society £400 to go towards new dancewear.
Dancesport Society is dedicated to teaching Ballroom and Latin dancing to students at all levels and abilities. The society has competed in many local and national competitions but the outfits used for these competitions were extremely old, damaged or ill-fitting.
Dancesport applied to the Alumni Foundation for a grant to go towards new competition dancewear; the society felt that the lack of decent dancewear impinged on their image and performance.
There was a lack of male dancewear in particular and the Alumni Foundation grant enabled the society to purchase men’s Latin tops and trousers and well as a ballroom and Latin dresses.
