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!

Jazz - Monday 7-9pm
Contemporary - Tuesday 7-9pm
