Vibes: Bollywood Dance Society is taking part in Just Bollywood Dance Competition 2019 and we are raising £500 to give 20 University of Leeds students a chance to take part this year! Just Bollywood is one of the most prestigious university dance competitions in the UK and the University of Leeds is one of the top 10 universities to make it to the final round!
Who are we?
Started in 2006, Vibes Bollywood Dance Society aims to promote Indian Bollywood Dance style across all Leeds students. Bollywood dance originated in early India, incorporated in film songs and albums; and is now well-known across major countries in the world as one of the most enjoyable and fun dance style.
Vibes has been taking part in competitions and performances through the years such as Battle of Bollywood, Mehfil, and LUU Dance Competition. This year we hope to continue our Just Bollywood journey and bring glory to Leeds by winning the competition!
Vibes took part in Just Bollywood last year and managed to secure 2 trophies in the competition, but didn't manage to make it to the top 3 spots in the competition.
As Just Bollywood is held in London, we spent a lot of our money on travel, accommodation and costumes and our funds get too low to take part in anything else in the year - costumes for performances and LUU dance competitions. If we were to raise enough money to subsidize the costs for Just Bollywood, students who are passionate about performing Bollywood dance could take part and compete for the competition without having to think about the expenditure.
This is where you step in - Every gift you can help us with will motivate Leeds students to not only join Just Bollywood but to do whatever they want to without financial priorities holding them back. Your donation can make our dreams come true and help us represent Leeds to make them proud.
Where will the money go?
we would like to raise a funding target of 250 GBP to subsidise our the costs of our travel to just Bollywood competition. all proceeds we raise after this will go towards our just bollywood fund which covers:
- Individual dance costumes for each dancer: £20 per person
- Props and equipment used during the dance: £50
- Accommodation: £50 per person/2 nights
- For a £10, we will give you a personalized shout-out on our Facebook page!
- For a £20, we will record a personalized backstage video for you!
- For a generous £50, we will record a mini dance video on your favourite song!
- For any gift, you can receive regular updates on our fund-raising and our exclusive Just Bollywood Journey!
Help us succeed!
Any donation to our cause can make a massive difference. As a society, we've managed to raise most of the funds we require. We just need that extra support for making better costumes and props to increase our chances of showcasing a better performance.
However, you don't need to give money to help us succeed! Please share this project with anyone you think would support us – on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, by email, telephone, in a chat over the fence or on your blog. In fact, share it with everyone you know as we think it's a great idea, and the more people who know about it, the more likely we are to make this work out brilliantly.
And yes, we said you don't need to give money to help us, but we'd love it if you did! Please sponsor us and help make our Bollywood dreams come true!
