BL Dance Society invites you to join us in a multitude of dance styles that we offer, including regular classes in Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz, Commercial, Heels and Hip-Hop. We also enjoy our weekly Strength & Flexibility sessions to help us become stronger and more versatile dancers! We also offer workshops throughout the year focusing on various dance styles such as Bollywood, Afrobeats Dancing, Musical Theatre and more! Anything you're interested in, please let us know!
We cater to dancers of all abilities, from beginners who are just finding their feet to those who are more experienced - we offer events for everyone. During the first term, our classes can teach beginners the basics whilst we hold auditions and rehearsals for those interested in joining our competition squads. In the new year, our squads then battle it out against other universities and we also prepare for our Annual Showcase! This is our big event of the year where everyone in the society can show off their skills and strut their stuff! We have regular social events so if dancing isn't your style, you can join us as a social member!
Dance is a great way to keep fit, meet new people and most importantly have a lot of fun! So whatever your level or dance style, come and join us, we can't wait to welcome you!

We have 5 amazing squads that compete in inter-university competitions; Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Hip-hop and Heels. We hold auditions shortly after freshers’ fortnight and use term one to finesse our performances. Keep an eye out for audition dates and locations on our social media! You don't need to prepare anything - just come along and have a go (you don't even have to have experience in the style either!). We attend 3 competitions a year, most inside London but we might travel to other cities. So join our squads and help us add more trophies to our collection ;).
