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, 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 run classes in many different styles throughout the week:
Jazz, Contemporary, Tap, Ballet, Swing, Commercial, Burlesque, Zumba, Hip Hop, Salsa, Bachata and Flex + Tone.
Check out our website or Facebook page each week to find out about our workshop class and you can even vote for what style you want the workshop to be. This gives you the opportunity to try something new and never before done at King's. Previous styles have included Bhangra, Irish dance and even a Beyonce workshop!
Don't be afraid if you have never done a style before, we cater for all abilities and are always welcoming to beginners! To try out all of our dance styles for free, come along to our taster day on Sunday 24th September 2017.
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. Join us this year for Retrograde, on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd of March! With 150 dancers participating, 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!
KCL Fusion, our award winning competition team, travel around the country to compete against other universities and represent Kings 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 an incredible 23 trophies last year and hope to beat that record in the coming competition season. If you are a passionate dancer and would like to represent your university by competing nationally, do not miss our 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 over £8,000 for local charities including a homeless shelter and a charity supporting those with Parkinsons disease. We even teamed up with KCL RAG to raise over £6400 for Action Against Hunger with our fabulous event Strictly Come Dance Soc!
