Ballroom and Latin Dance Society

Creative Industries

We are Southampton University's Ballroom and Latin Dance Society. We encourage and teach dance at both a social and competitive level. Weekly classes for all standards are taught by professional teachers and we also compete regularly throughout the year against other universities across the country.

We perform demonstrations at local events, take part in the annual dance showcase 'Pure Dance' and organise Southampton's very own Strictly Come Dancing every year! We are a very friendly and welcoming community open to all for enjoyment, fitness and involvement in the student union through our love of Ballroom dance...

'Keeeep Dancing!'.

Ballet Society

Performing Arts

The ballet society is for all those with a love of ballet. We hope to cater for everyone by providing relaxed and fun ballet classes at 4 levels: beginners, improvers, intermediate, and advanced. So whether you have been dancing for as long as you can remember or are looking to try ballet for the first time, or even if you are just looking for a great way to stay flexible and fit, we hope you come along and get involved. As well as ballet classes, we have an active social calendar with events ranging from visits to the theatre to nights out on the town. We also run competition squads who have competed very successfully at inter-university dance competitions. Regular class attendees are also invited to perform in the annual 'Pure Dance' show, which showcases the work of Southampton University Dance Societies.
