In this Court ball, the gorgeous dresses were dazzling, the royal throne precipitated the elegance of England, the diamond crown was shining like a star, the delicious food flew into the mouth, and guests talked, laughed and cheered with others.
Led by host Kakou and hostess Crystal, we traveled through time and space together to reach the peak of Britain. UCL Provost Michael Arthur gave us a wonderful opening speech. Subsequently, UCL vice-provost Ms Lori Houlihan and professor Geraint Rees and professor Ivan Parkin expressed their kind greetings. British consul-general Mr John Edwards and SORSA Vice Chairman Bing Yu also delivered their speeches. Michelle Zhou, the founder of Saills also sent her regards through Video.
Then the performers brought a well-prepared and fabulous opening dance. The gentlemen were elegant and graceful, the princesses were gorgeous and charming, and they attracted full attentions of every guest.
With leading dancers, everyone invited partners in the social dance session. Sweetness and enthusiasm warmed up the ball room.
Now turned to the exciting and fierce stage battle. Four families Euston, Gower, Bloomsbury and Russell had each chosen a pair of dancers to represent the family honor. When the music started, dancers performed classic court dance, light swing dance or free style dance by their own heart. In the end, Charles Jiang and Artemis Chen, who represented the Bloomsbury family, pushed the atmosphere to several climaxes with their wild and free style. After fierce rose voting by VIP guests, Charles and Artemis won the title of Dancing King & Dancing Queen.
Sherry Zhang, with 430 likes in her Wechat moment, deserved to win the Best Popularity Award tonight. Yitian Ma was given a lucky card number and became the the lucky koi of this year annual party.
Furthermore, Provost Professor Michael Arthur gave a medal to the members of the UCL Shanghai Alumni Club Committee. We are also looking for more alumni to join us to make a contribution to UCL together.
