2019 TASTER SESSIONS:
We are running 3 FREE sessions starting on Thursday 26th September 6pm - 8pm in the Patricia Yardley studio within the BSA in Millennium Point. This will continue for the following 2 Thursdays (3rd 10th October), locations TBC.
Join us to start learning the routine that we will be using for the auditions on the 3rd week!
Please bring: BCU ID card, water bottle and sass!
WHAT WE OFFER:
Our aim of this society is to give you the opportunity to try out new dance styles, improve your skills in those styles and have a fun time doing so! We want our society to be a place where you can come for 2 hours to let loose and have fun!
Our society has its doors open to anyone and everyone, so no matter what shape, size, ethnicity, or even dance ability you are, it doesn't matter, we are all there to have fun and learn new dance styles and routines.
We hold two classes each week:
- C140 (Tuesday, 6pm-8pm)
- BSA Studio 5 (Thursday, 6pm-8pm)
THE TWO TEAMS:
The competing team are likely to meet on Thursday between 6-8 every week and will be made up of roughly around 20 dancers. We are looking for people who are able to commit to rehearsals every week and we're aiming to enter three University dance competitions in 2020 (which are really good fun).
Your £60 membership should cover individual entry for all of the competitions but there may be additional costs required for insurance, costumes and transport.
The Varsity team are likely to meet on Tuesdays between 6-8 every week. The team will be made up of 20+ dancers and will be taught by an external teacher. This class will be more relaxed because it's not a competitive team but, your group routine will be performed at Varsity 2020 which takes place in April.
Varsity is a big University sports tournament where the BCU sports teams (e.g. football, rugby) will compete against other Unis and we will perform in the half time breaks.
Please make sure you wear comfortable and flexible clothing. Suitable clothing would include leggings, shorts, joggers etc. Make sure to bring a bottle of water with you and you’ll need your student card in order to gain access to the building.
The first three classes are free! This is so you can get a feel for the society without committing from the start. If after these 3 weeks you are successful in the audition process and want to join the society, an annual membership is £60.
