Your Invitation to get Involved and Support #SWANSEAPRIDE2020
Be part of “Swansea Pride Hits the Dance Floor 2020”….
… The pre Pride Event that will really kick start the Pride Weekend for Swansea 2020!
“Swansea Pride Hits the Dance Floor” is back and will be arriving on Friday 1stMay 2020(get it in your diaries!) at the Brangwyn Hall Swansea as a pre Pride Event to allow audiences and followers of Swansea Pride to let their hair down ready for the weekend and support our Community through a glittery, “Strictly” inspired evening.
This glitzy and extremely fun Event is being hosted on the Friday evening (1stMay) before the big Swansea Pride Day (Saturday 2ndMay) making it a stand out choice to attend. This celebration will hopefully allow everyone to get into the rainbow spirit and have a Pride party the entire weekend!
Swansea Pride Hits the Dance Floor is a Dance Event that sees contestants in the form of novice or inexperienced dancers and LGBT+ Individuals from all backgrounds and businesses, be partnered into dance couples for up to 10 weeks before the Event. They will then be allocated a Choreographer / Dance Expert. The 10 x Trio Team (2 x Contestants and 1 x Choreographer) will have to choreograph and learn a Dance Routine to be performed live on the night of “Swansea Pride Hits the Dance Floor!”
Like “Strictly Come Dancing” the Brangwyn Hall is turned into a Pride themed Ballroom, with audience seating in the round. There will be fun Celebrity judges including previous Strictly Come Dancing winner Charlie Brooks (Janine Butcher in Eastenders / Winner of I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here) offering their feedback and critique and other celebrity guests in attendance.
We are looking for diverse and fun contestants to perform. The couples can be from all backgrounds: be it real life partners, friends, work colleagues, drag queens who work at the same events- (anything goes!) the only thing we do ask for is that each individual must have a good sense of humour, be a part of or a friend of the LGBT+ Community and all must support Pride!
This LGBT+ Friendly dance inspired event showcases the novice dance couples and allies of the LGBT+ Community as they sizzle, strut and samba their way around the Brangwyn Hall Dance floor after their weeks of rehearsals in a competition to win the Pride Swansea Glitter Ball Trophy 2020.
The sequins will be out, the Fizz will be flowing, for thiscamp, glitzy andSpectacular night out!
Returning to the Dance Floor: 2ndYear of Swansea Pride Hits the Dance Floor
In May 2019, we launched the first ever “Swansea Pride Hits the Dance Floor “event which was the first of its kind in Swansea and across the UK seeing same gender couples and drag queens dance together. For fans of Dancing on Ice, this year we see Matt Evers and Ian H Watkins skate together which is triumphant for the LGBT+ community and from this Swansea Pride Hits the Dance Floor event, we wish to continue this partnering as the “norm.”
Last year’s “Hits the Dancefloor” event ran brilliantly well and increased the support for Swansea Pride 2019. It encouraged many radio presenters, business people and creative individuals to express and celebrate their individuality. The 2019 event also saw a number of participants step forward to represent their business in this fun, pressure-free event and allowed Swansea Pride to gain the support of and collaborate with a range of local businesses.
