Our second AGM was held in Downing JCR on Sunday 25 February 2018.  Here is a look back at the past year, a look at future plans and an introduction to the fabulous new committee for 2018-2019.

Review of the past year

2017-2018 was the second full year of CUPS being an official Cambridge University Society and its popularity and reach is growing. The club has started performing at many events around Cambridge including St Edmund’s May Ball, the Intervarsity Folk Dance Festival and Boys will be Boys at the ADC Theater. We hosted our first ever showcase, which was a huge success!!! In addition to our talented dancers being able to show off their skills in professional but friendly atmosphere, the club managed to raise a fair sum of money. The level of talent in the club is high and has been proven at 2 competitions in the past year. CUPS won CATS Battle of the Societies and our CUPS team did extremely well at the Midlands Inter University Pole Competition in Birmingham. Jemima Churchhouse placed 3rd in the intermediates solo category and Liat Adler 1st in the advanced category, with stunning performances from the rest of the team.

Looking forwards

The next year is expected to bring many exciting classes and performances and lets not forget Pole Surf Camp! Some things to look forwards to include:Varsity

  • Pole competition/showcase with Oxford (we are still working out the logistics)
  • Performances at Hughes Hall and Christ’s May Ball
  • CUPS Garden Party – on Jesus Green
  • Pole Surf Camp – sign up if you haven’t already done so
  • CUPS Christmas Showcase
  • More weekly classes!
  • Choreography classes
  • Workshop
  • Swaps

There are so many great things to look forwards to in the next years, so let us know if you would like to get involved 🙂
