This show is our 21st showcase, and so we are going with the GREATEST HITS THEME!
If you'd like to perform something from you back catalogue, please do include this in your application form. Please note, these shouldn't be routines from the last two showcase (Sweet, Sour and Sassy, or BomBombs Bust Out).
If you would like to perform something from the BomBomb back catalogue you can view this below the performer details (further down this page). These can be edited/tweaked but please note, if they are performed as a group all participants must be involved in these decisions.
PLEASE NOTE YOU CAN ONLY BE CONSIDERED FOR A MAXIMUM OF THREE ROUTINES FOR THE SHOWCASE
There will be a £5 application fee per person, per routine, for anyone wishing to perform in their own solo, duet or group choreography in the showcase.
Please be sure you can perform at the show and attend the dress rehearsal (Wednesday 19 October) before submitting your application.
In the event your routine cannot be accepted for the showcase due to capacity issues, your application fee will be refunded.
Should we receive more submissions than we can accept, priority will be given to BomBombs who have regularly attended classes, and who haven't performed recently.
There will be no application fee for BomBombs only performing in class routines.
The Feedback Forum is free of charge.

Cost: Free of Charge
Time: 6pm - 8pm
Venue: BomBomb Studio, Hyde
This is your opportunity to “perform” your routine in front of your fellow performers to give you your (possibly) first experience of rehearsing with a live audience, to help you understand the spacing available for you, and to help improve your routine/fill in any blanks you still have.
Dress Rehearsal Own Choreography: Wednesday 19 October 2022
Time: 7pm - 9pm
Venue: BomBomb Studios, Hyde
Cost: £5/Free of charge for Ultimate Sparkle members
This is your opportunity to try out your costume to check for any slippages (PLEASE NOTE, full costume MUST be worn), perform your routine as if "on the night" and get a more accurate feel for the stage!
How do you confirm my place?
All applicants will be added to the showcase group. There are a maximum of 18 slots available for this showcase. In the event we receive more applications than this, priority will be given to ladies who have attend classes during the lockdown period. Please consider creating duets/trios/troupes as well as solo submissions.
We will announce the programme no later than the 15 AUGUST once applications have closed.
OWN PAST CHOREOGRAPHY
You are welcome to perform something from your own back catalogue
(i.e. your favourite routine from a past show).
Please note this must be from a show before October 2021 (i.e. not from Sweet, Sour and Sassy April 2022, or BomBombs Bust Out October 2021).
If you have not performed a solo prior to this you are still more than welcome to perform something from the class choreography as below and are welcome to tweak this however you see fit. Please note this is open to multiple people and so decisions to change the choreography must be made as a group.
If you have any questions, please do get in touch!
