Ballroom Dance Company takes modern formation title at Blackpool, England

Brigham Young University’s Ballroom Dance Company sparkled on stage at the Blackpool Dance Festival in Blackpool, England, and received first-place in the Modern Formation category and second-place in the Latin Formation division.

Amid all of the scheduled performances and competitions, the BYU group was able to take time out to give an extra performance for a group of special-needs children in Croydon, England.

Denise Kearns, a presenter at Croydon, commented on the BYU group’s visit to England. “The dancers are wonderful ambassadors for BYU and for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,” she said. “Our invited guests were very generous in their praise for the dancers and the standard of their performance.”

The group’s European tour continued through Belgium, France, Switzerland, Italy and Spain before they returned home on June 25.
