Help B.A.D. compete for Team England in Rome

Basingstoke Academy of Dancing has qualified two groups and a duet to compete as part of Team England in the Dance World Cup Finals 2020 taking place in Rome.   This will be about 35 dancers aged 8 to 21.
This competition involves over 20,000 dancers from 62 countries so this is an extremely exciting and amazing opportunity for these girls to represent their country and our school on a worldwide stage doing something they absolutely adore, but it costs a great deal of money !

They need new Costumes, Team Kit, Flights, Hotel accommodation and transport at the very minimum.  We will be organising a whole programme of fundraising activities as well as approaching some possible corporate sponsors but we have a huge target to achieve just to get the students in position to participate in the Finals !  It would be lovely if we could help those families allow their children to take part in this competition next Summer. 

The three dances are all in the Commercial Category  - we will have our previously very successful Senior Large Group  - GAGAs BAD CREW, a Junior Duet and our MINIS new Small Group  - The Power of Spice  - all choreographed by Dan Keen. 

The 5 MINIS will also be able to take part in the Opening Ceremony in Rome. 

Hopefully you can help  - please be aware that all of your donations will go towards the students costs but that GoFundMe will deduct a transaction fee first.  

Thanks for your consideration !
