Dance

About

Queen Mary Dance Company aims to bring people together through the love of dance. We train and compete in the styles of hip-hop, jazz, contemporary and tap. 

We strive to improve the technique of each dancer as well as creating new, original and exciting routines that we perform at many different competitions throughout the year. Our rehearsals are intense, yet thoroughly enjoyable and there is opportunity for all members to input their own creativity and ideas. We work at a high level to create routines that will push the capabilities of each dancer as well as exploring different music and performance styles.

We also hold an annual showcase, where we perform our routines and choreographies from the year. This is where our members will get the opportunity to put forward ideas and choreographies, to display to friends/family and members of the public.

We also will be holding our first QMDC internal competition this year where all of our members will compete against each other and perform to our alumni judges!

We have had lots of success at QMDC, winning a record of 19 trophies (our highest to date) throughout the previous year including team wins across all categories, as well as individual awards such as best dancer and best team spirit. We aim to beat this in the upcoming year, and win more trophies for the company!

Personal Fitness

QMSU offers a gym on the Mile End campus, Qmotion, as well as a sister-gym in Charterhouse Square, Fitness to Practice, both with competitive student membership rates. This is ideal for students who want to purchase a gym membership - which is separate from a Club Sport subs - to improve and maintain peak physical fitness.

With every gym membership, you get a free 60 minute one-to-one session with trained instructors which includes:

  • A personalised gym programme tailored to your own fitness goals;
  • A full demonstration of exercise and techniques, and guidance on resistance machines;
  • Information and advice on nutrition;
  • A 60 minute review session every 6-8 weeks to re-evaluate and re-customise a new programme to avoid plateaus.
