Hello dancers and those who support us dancers!
We, as Melbourne University Dancesport Club (MUDC) would like to invite you to our annual showcase. What makes this night different? This is the one night we reach out to ballroom dancers with different backgrounds; we have Hip Hop, Argentine Tango, Latin...you name it. During this night we showcase the hard work of our teachers and weeks of rehearsals. We display different styles and dance and emphasise that we cater for those with no dancing background so should you be interested in joining us, you already know what the dances look like. You can also speak to one of our committee members on the night should you have any question and we will be more than happy to be of assistance.
Now getting to the important part, what will the program be like?
The night kicks off with a performance from our committee, followed by guest performances, as well as individual dance class performances. During the intermission we have a progressive dance to have our audience involved. Of course at the end of the night we have an open floor for those who would like to show off their style.

Date : Friday, 13th May
Time : 6:30pm - 9:30pm
Venue : Union House Level 2, Grand Buffet Hall, University of Melbourne
Tickets : $10 for members and $15 for non-members
