Whether you’ve been dancing all your life or have never danced before, KCL Dance Society has something for you!
As proud winners of the prestigious KCLSU “Activity Group of the Year” Award 2015/16 and 2018/19 and nominees for 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2021/22, we are the biggest and best society at King's College London!
We are based in West Wing at Guy's Campus near London Bridge and in Bush House at Strand Campus and run classes in many different styles throughout the week.
We offer a variety of styles, including Jazz, Contemporary, Tap, Ballet, Commercial, Heels, Hip Hop, Salsa and Workshops (which have previously included Bhangra, Irish Dance and Musical Theatre!).
Our classes are open to ALL levels and are a great place to meet new people with a passion for dance. All of our teachers are leading professionals in London coming from studios such as Pineapple, Base and Studio 68. It's a great way to get taught by the best at an affordable price.
You can purchase membership on this page for £25, which allows you to join our classes at only £2 per class, access to exclusive socials, and participation in KCL Fusion or our annual show! Otherwise, if you want to give classes a try without buying the standard membership, classes are £5 per class (we do require you to purchase the free Drop-In Membership for insurance purposes).
To try out our classes for FREE, come on down to our Taster Day during Welcome Week (keep an eye on our social media for more details)!
In the second term we run rehearsals for our annual dance show, the biggest Dance Soc event of the year, held at the Greenwood Theatre. With 150 dancers participating on average, this is an incredible opportunity for dancers and choreographers of all levels to perform, make friends and show the King's College London community just what we can do!
Choreographer auditions take place at the end of Term 1, and dancer auditions during the beginning of Term 2.
If you fancy taking dance to a competitive level, you can also join us! KCL Fusion, our award winning competition team, travel around the country to compete against other universities and represent King's nationally. We have teams competing in styles including Jazz, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Tap, Ballet and Wildcard, and we are always looking for strong dancers and choreographers to lead us to victory! We won and placed at several competitions last year and hope to exceed this in the coming competition season. If you are a passionate dancer and would like to represent your university by competing nationally, don't miss our dancer auditions!
We are also involved with the local community and hold various charity workshops and events throughout the year. This includes teaching workshops at schools, performing at functions, volunteering at local charities and collaborating with other socities to help raise money. Last year we raised significant amounts of money through our annual show and Strictly Come Dance Soc, which went to charities such as icandance and Green Candle Dance!
