Dance Society is one of the biggest societies on campus. We welcome everyone no matter your level of dance experience.
We currently offer classes in: ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, lyrical, commercial, hip hop, stretch and tone, technique and dance fitness. We also hold workshops with industry professionals and collaborate with other societies on campus throughout the year.
All members are encouraged to participate in our termly showcases and there are opportunities to audition for our competition teams who go on to compete at universities around the UK. As well as this, we hold regular socials throughout the year from coffee mornings to themed parties.
We are proud to support the Forest Estate Community Hub through our volunteering scheme, something all our members are encouraged to get involved in. We look forward to welcoming new and returning members to our Dance Society family!
Standard membership allows you to attend all open classes throughout the year. Membership fees go towards our termly showcases and the hiring of rehearsal spaces. If you would like to be involved in any of our showcases it will be required that you purchase a standard membership (rather than PAYG) for insurance purposes.
Competition memberships are additionally required if you are selected to be on any of our competition teams. This additional fee covers costs including transport and competition entries. Competition dancers also have the option to purchase a competition jacket, something that is a separate cost to the membership fee. In order to buy a competition membership, dancers must already have purchased a standard membership.
New for this year, we offer a social membership. It is great for dancers who want to bring flatmates, friends and partners who do not dance to our social events. If you buy a standard membership you do NOT need to purchase this to attend the social events.
If you would like to pay as you go, each class is £1. Our PAYG membership only covers classes or workshops, so if you are plannig to join us at any socials, you will need a Standard or Social Membership.
As a society, we will adhere to social distancing guidelines and COVID-19 measures to make sure our members stay safe and healthy. Some of our events may take place virtually on platforms such as Zoom or Microsoft teams to help accommodate this.
Please feel free to send us a message via our Facebook (Dance Society Royal Holloway) or Instagram pages. Our committee are happy to answer any questions you may have!
