DCU’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Straight Allies Society (LGBTA) has been crowned the winner of DCU’s second annual Best Dance Crew competition. The group battled fellow DCU clubs and societies and received a standing ovation from the audience.
12 societies entered this year’s competition and each dance crew had a mentor from DCU Dance to choreograph their routine.
400 people attended the event. Chairperson of DCU Dance, Sarah Flanagan said it was “a great way of bringing clubs and societies together and have a bit of fun learning how to dance”.
The Harry Potter Society wore cloaks and carried glowing wands while the Students’ Union recreated the famous lift from the movie “Dirty Dancing”.
DCU Dance member and choreographer for the Accounting and Finance Society, Sarah Curran said: “I’m so proud of my group and the effort that they put into learning their routine. The Dance Society put so much commitment into running the event and the energy on the night was great.”
DCU LGBTA entered the competition for the first time this year. The group choreographed its own routine.
The judges, former SU President Meg O’Riordan and DCU Dance’s Don King and Lisa Craddock picked the top four acts. The audience then chose DCU LGBTA as the 2012 winner. DCU Dance plan to donate a portion of the profits from the event to charity.
