The University of Plymouth Dance Club (UPDC) offers classes in HipHop, Contemporary, Tap, Ballet andJazz. Classes are weekly during term time and are £2 per class, £5 for three classes or £10 for 6 classes of the same style. We welcome experienced dancers and beginners, where there is no commitment to coming every week. Dance is a great way to exercise, to meet new people and to have fun, so come along; you won't regret joining!
This year we are planning two exciting showcases for you to perform in. Our Winter showcase takes place before the Christmas holidays and our Summer showcase takes place before the Easter holidays. We put on these showcases as a chance for you to perform in front of family and friends, and to raise money for both the club and our chosen charity, Jeremiah’s Journey. Last year we raised over £700, and this year we hope to raise more! Each class will perform at least one dance in each showcase, and we encourage you all to get involved!
As well as our regular classes, we have an advanced competition team made up of ballet, tap, jazz, wildcard, contemporary and hip-hop squads. The biggest dance competition we compete at is Loughborough University Dance Competition, which is the biggest University Dance Competition in the UK. Last year, our contemporary squad took home 2nd place, and we can’t wait to compete again this year! We will also be competing at Cardiff University Dance Competition for the first time this year. Auditions are held at the start of the academic year for the competition team and we ask for full commitment from all team members.
