Send West Philly Swingers to BTP!

West Philly Swingers, the University of Pennsylvania's swing dance troupe, is looking to send THIRTY SIX dancers to Boston Tea Party Swings 2018. This event allows our members to learn, create, and compete in lindy hop, west coast swing, blues, and balboa. No other event on the east coast can say the same. The Boston Tea Party is widely regarded among troupe members and alumni as the most significant event for the troupe all year outside of our own shows.

Your support goes 100% towards making this trip more affordable for college students. Here is what we plan to do with the money.

Deadline: 3/20

GOAL: $510
Cover all requested financial aid from active members of the troupe, the tech team, and then inactive members.

Stretch goal: $680
Cover any extra financial aid costs, subsidize transportation costs and other costs/fees.

Stretch goal: $850
Extend troupe subsidy, subsidize any extra costs/fees, including the live band room fee. 

Help us make this amazing trip a reality! We can't do it without your help!
