About us

As the Ballroom and Latin Dancesport Society we offer 10 different styles of dance which is taught to us by a Professional Coach. These styles of dance are the same as the ones seen on BBC’s Strictly!

Over the academic year, as a group we will be competing all over the country whilst representing our University. Tail suits, sparkly dresses and a day filled with so much fun!

Learn new skills whilst becoming a family of friends with the people around you, amazing friendships form from the love of dance. The year is also packed with socials and events to celebrate all the achievements!


Become a member of one of the friendliest communities on campus!

Professional coaching will be held once a week, whilst an additional day will be led by Committee. Membership gives each person the opportunity to represent Royal Holloway at competitions, including Blackpool and Varsity. In addition, the memberships will also allow each member of the society to receive discounts at events, such as Strictly come Holloway, the History Ball and free social lessons once a week.
