Weekly classes run by a professional teacher in ballroom and latin dancing. Beginners and improvers lessons for all abilities.
I’ve been dancing for 15 years and would love to continue this at University. Dancing brings so many different people together and is a great social activity whilst learning a new skill. It’s also great exercise and improves posture and core strength.
Ballroom covers the Waltz, Quickstep, Tango, Foxtrot and Viennese Waltz
Latin covers the Cha Cha, Rumba, Paso Doble, Jive and Samba.
I’d like to also include Argentine Tango.
Just floating the idea to see what people think?
Please give some ideas of activities your society would run
Weekly classes for beginners and improvers
Social evenings (watching strictly together, nights out for meals and drinks)
Practice Sessions to just have a social dance and work on choreography and different steps.
Masterclasses to work on technique, footwork, hold etc
We could get involved in inter-university competitions and amateur exams for those who want to do grades.
I’d love to run a yearly ‘Strictly-Style’ charity event where we take non-dancers and pair them with dance society members to perform a dance at a show, complete with judges. We could change the charity we benefit each year.
