After many spending many hours in preparation and rehearsal, the BYU Ballroom Dance Company will travel abroad for its 2013 performance tour, May 24–June 17. Every three years the dance company competes in the prestigious Blackpool Dance Festival in England. This year, the group will compete in the competition and will also perform in 10 additional performances across England, Germany, and Switzerland.
The Blackpool Dance Festival is an annual competition that draws the best ballroom teams and dancers from around the world. In 2010 the modern formation team from BYU returned home with its 11th win while the Latin formation team earned its 12th win. Although we know the competition will be high, we hope the hard work of the company will once again pay off.
