Annual Dance show

Every year the Dance Society puts on a large show where each class performs a piece. This year the show will be taking place in the Winston Theatre on the 12-14th March 2021.


Competition Teams

We also have a number of award-winning competition teams which enter into a number of University competitions during the academic year as well as competing in Varsity against UWE. In 2020, we competed at Liverpool and Sheffield Dance Competitions in March winning 7 awards/trophies across the two competitions! Well done to all our incredibly talented dancers for all the hard work they have put in this year, we look forward to more great results next year!
