What We Do

Welcome to DanceSoc, the University of Bath's dance society!

We are a large, diverse society offering participation in styles of dance including Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, lyrical, Tap and Hip-Hop. 

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 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.

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