Dance

About us

Dance Society is one of the biggest societies on campus. We welcome everyone no matter your level of dance experience and some of our beginners have even gone on to compete.

We currently offer weekly classes in: Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Commercial, Hip-hop, Stretch and Tone, Dance Fitness, Pilates and Yoga. We're always looking to expand our weekly classes so these are subject to change each term. Anyone can participate in our termly showcases and our dancers even have the opportunity to choreograph their own pieces. You can also audition for our competition teams at the beginning of term one who we take to compete in universities across the UK. Every year, we host our own Home Competiton here at Royal Holloway which is our biggest and most exciting event of the year.

We also hold workshops with industry professionals and collaborate with other societies throughout the year. As well as this, we hold regular socials throughout the year from movie nights to themed parties, day trips and formal balls. 

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 also fundraise for the organisation throughout the year, as well as for our nominated charity, Magpie Dance and other charities close to our hearts. We look forward to welcoming new and returning members to our Dance Society family!

Membership

Standard membership allows you to attend all open classes, socials and workshops throughout the year. Membership fees go towards our termly showcases, professional workshops, and large events. 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 all competition-related costs including costumes and competition entry fees, and varies depending on the number of teams you are on to accomodate for costume costs. Please note that in order to buy a competition membership, dancers must already have purchased a standard membership.

We also offer a social membership which is great for dancers who want to bring flatmates, friends and partners who do not want to 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/non-professional workshops, so if you are planning to join us at any socials, you will need a Standard or Social Membership.
