Oxfordshire's Ballroom dancing team win at SEA

27 February 2019

OFYFC Ballroom Dancing

On behalf of the OFYFC Ballroom dancing team we would like to thank you for your kind donations towards our lessons at Abingdon Dance School. In the last 7 weeks not only have we learnt 4 types of dance: Cha Cha Cha, Jive, Quick step and Waltz but friend ships have been made.

The Ballroom dancing team was made up of members from Henley Seniors, Abingdon Seniors and Zoe Dalby from Abingdon Juniors. It has been great to see Zoe’s confidence grow over the last 7 weeks, from the Zoe that walked in quietly to our first rehearsal to then laughing and joking around with us and trusting us. This is an important part of junior and senior integration within YFC.

I am pleased to confirm that we came 1st at South East Area on Saturday 23rd February, it was strong competition between the 3 teams, Bucks and Kent but we pulled it out the bag and in the words of our members, ‘We bossed it!’

We are now looking forward to competing at the National finals on 6th July in Staffordshire, we have taken on board the judges’ comments from Saturday and we are hoping to be able to get placed with some more training from Michelle and practice!
