Whether you are advanced, intermediate or a beginner, DanceSoc is guaranteed to give you a fun, dynamic and social experience during your time at university.

Examples of DanceSoc activities which YOU can take part in: 

  • Weekly classes for a range of abilities, in a variety of styles.
  • Two annual shows (December and April) which anyone can participate or choreograph in.
  • Competition teams for both intermediate and advanced categories.
  • Attendance at 3 national competitions each year!
  • Regular socials for all members- garenteed to be super fun courtesy of our amazing Social Sec!

DanceSoc is a brilliant, inclusive society, where students can enjoy dancing with friends whilst improving choreography and technical skills.

We have 4 classes a week which vary week to weeek. They are run by Dancesoc students and are a great way to make new friends and are super fun! Classes this year are completely free all year as long as you have bough the Dancesoc membership (only £7)!

Up-to-date timetables for classes will be posted on the Instagram- so don't forget to keep checking or turn on post notifications so you don't miss out!! 

Please note that seperate classes run by the SU on Monday in the dance studio are NOT part of dancesoc and are paid classes.

All of Dancesoc's Mnday classes are held in Weston Theatre on the ground floor of the Edge. All of Dancesoc's Thursday classes are held in the Dance Studio on the 3rd floor of the Edge.
