Queen Mary Dance Company aims to bring people together through the love of dance. Our 23/24 team will train and compete in the styles of hip-hop, jazz, contemporary, tap, and ballet!
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 and across the country. 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 will also be hosting our own competition for the second time, where dancers from other universities will be able to compete in front of guest judges.
We are so proud of our continued success at QMDC; last year QMDC won a record number of trophies during the competition season! The company continues to excel in all styles, as well as achieving individual awards such as best dancer and best team spirit. As always we aim to excel our accomplishments in the upcoming year, and win more trophies for the company and we hope you can join us!!
Each style will train for 1hour 15mins each week and our rehearsal timetable can be found on our instagram!
