The university dance club (UPDC) offers classes in HipHop, Contemporary, Tap, Ballet, Jazz, Dancehall, Irish, Zumba and Yoga . Classes are weekly during term time and are £2 per class or £5 for three 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!
We hope you guys and gals are ready for UPDC this year! It's not all dancing as every other week we have our socials. We've got lots of fun outings planned this year for everyone to get involved in, including pyjama parties, hippy dress up, 80s and circus themed nights. However it's not all about partying as we do have other socials such as pizza nights and bowling. So come along, you won't be disappointed.
This year we are planning to put on two shows for our dancers to perform in- one at christmas and one around eastertime. In the past we have invited along Musical Theatre Group, Storm Cheerleaders, Pole Dancing and Burlesque. It's a big event and we try to raise lots of money for charity- last year we raised over £700! Each class will perform at least one dance in the show, which gives everybody a chance to get involved and show off all your hard work.
As well as our regular beginners and intermediate classes we also have an advanced competition squad that rehearses every week for ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, contemporary, and wildcard. This year we will be going to two competitions, both in Term 2, in Exeter and Loughborough. We ask for full commitment from anyone in competition squad as each year we are getting more and more competitive as a club.
