UPDC showcase their talent while raising over £700 at "A Winter's Tale"


Last term on Friday 6th December, the University of Plymouth Dance Club (UPDC) hosted their Winter Showcase, "A Winter's Tale".

The night was a performance opportunity for the UPDC members to showcase what they have been working on during the first semester as well as raising funds for their chosen charity, Jeremiah's Journey.

"A Winter's Tale" comprised of performances of a range of different disciplines which included; Irish, Contemporary, Tap, Jazz, Ballet and Hip-Hop.

Emily, a member of the audience said:

"It was very varied with lots of different styles of dance and enjoyable to watch."

A UPDC member said:

"It was amazing! Everyone worked so hard and the show was great! Very well attended and loved every moment, reminded me of my dance school days back home!"

Caroline, the UPDC Tap Coach said:

"I am so proud of all my lovely tap dancers! They all danced amazingly in the showcase and I am so excited for the next semester."

Krystal and Alice, UPDC President and Vice-President said:

"It was lovely to see the whole club come together and dance beautifully on stage. The talent always amazes us and we can't wait to see everyone improve even more next semester!

Overall we had a very successful event and raised £728.56 which will be split between our club and our chosen charity. We would also like to thank SU Video, MTG and Jay Stone for helping us out on the night with filming, lighting and sound and photography respectively."
