Syscom supports Kahli Lewis Dance Company at 2019 Dance World Cupadmin
Syscom is proud to announce our sponsorship of the UK Dance Team at the Dance World Cup held in Braga, Portugal earlier this year.
Syscom donated to the fundraising activities of the Kahli Lewis Dance Company, which sent 17 students to the event to represent Team England as part of Team GB.
Ruth Morrison of the KLDC Fundraising Committee said: “The dancers worked hard in raising money and Syscom’s contribution was a much-needed boost to their efforts. In total we raised just over £8,400 which went towards the entry fees, the team kit, cabin bags and day sacks, workshops in Portugal, essential training in the UK beforehand, and travel costs. The dancers worked very hard and long hours in preparation, some around their GCSEs and A levels, and with a good degree of success (both in dance and in the academic exams).”
The fabulous news was that the effort was worth it with the team winning a bronze medal for Diamonde, the company’s large ballet group, while the junior quartet came fifth in their section, as did the senior ballet group. The soloists also performed beautifully and came 5th, 6th and 11th and were all placed in the top 12 in the world.
