Societies

Get involved!

Your SU is dedicated to giving you guys the best student experience possible. Joining a society is one of the many ways you can get involved in fun activities outside of your studies. Societies are an asset to the SU, bringing you more opportunities to make friends, build support networks and learn new skills.

All of the societies are run by committees which volunteer to provide you with these great opportunities. From course societies representing the interests of their students, liberation societies for underrepresented groups and leisure societies just for the fun of it, we are sure there is something for you! We highly recommend joining a society, and having a committee role looks great on a CV. Check out the menu on the left hand side to get information on joining our existing societies, or starting your own one! If you have any questions regarding societies, drop us an email at su.activities@uos.ac.uk

    Suffolk Ballroom and Latin Society

    Current
      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.
