Dancing Blues National Competition Travel

The Dancing Blues have seen a surge of success with national championships in five of the last seven years. Your Day of Giving gift to this project will help 14 members of the Dancing Blues and one coach represent Washburn at the 2020 American Dance/Drill Team Collegiate National Championships at the University of North Texas where they will look for more success.

The Need

Funds will partially cover cost of travel (bus), hotel, costumes and choreography. The costs are approximately $5000 for the bus and $1500 for hotel rooms. The Dancing Blues fundraise throughout the year to help cover other expenses such as uniforms, pom poms, props and Universal Dance Association Collegiate Camp attendance. Your gift will help pay for this important trip where they showcase their talents and increase our Washburn pride. Go Bods!

Dancing Blues Match
Bill and Emilie Gahnstrom will match gifts dollar-for-dollar up to $2,500 in travel funds for the Dancing Blues' national competition. The Dancing Blues are four-time American Dance and Drill Team National Champions with titles in 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2018.
