Dance at Loughborough offers a wide range of lessons including Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Contemporary, Hip Hop and Zumba. We offer lessons for all levels, so everybody is welcome.
Athletic Union Club
Our classes are open to both men and women and we have different levels of dance ranging from novice to advanced. We also offer workshops for beginners who wish to learn a new style of dance, or who just want to have fun and experience something new.
If you want to take your dancing to the next level, we have our External Competition Squad who take part in dance competitions around the country. Anyone is welcome to try out for this team.
All our members are given the opportunity to perform should you wish to do so. We have an annual sell-out show and we host and enter the Loughborough University Dance Competition, where you can show off your new dance skills.
There are three teams for each dance genre (Jazz, Ballet, Tap, Hip-Hop, Contemporary), one team for Latin and Wildcard, with our first and second teams taking part in national competitions. We are also introducing a new team of Commercial Dance this year.
Each class has a lesson each week, where most students do more than one lesson per week. Extra rehearsals are added before competitions and the annual showcase.
Zumba with a twist! Want to throw some fantastic shapes on the dance floor in the dark with glowing lights and loud music? If this sounds like fun to you then come along to our UV Zumba session to experience this great new workout! You’ll be given glow sticks ready to party in the dark and get fit to current tracks with your friends!
Coaching and volunteering
Within most sports there are a range of sports volunteering roles and opportunities for you to get involved and gain experience in. This ranges from coaching and officiating to events, marketing and media and sport science support.
