Ballroom & Latin Dancing Society

About us...

The Ballroom and Latin society aims to provide professional dance tuition to all individuals of all abilities and goals, from beginners to experienced dancers. Whether you are an ex-competitor wanting competitive coaching or whether you want to achieve the unique fitness Ballroom and Latin dancing offers, or if you just want to have fun and meet people whilst learning to dance properly and activate your body, this society caters for all.

Ever wanted to dance like they do in the movies? Sweep someone off their feet? Learn to dance like they do on Strictly Come dancing? Our fun inclusive classes range from a beginner’s standard of dance to more challenging intermediate level, where everyone is welcome. Whether it be the waltz or the tango you’re interested in, we cover it all. Professional instruction is provided in a relaxed, enjoyable and approachable environment. Strictly Sussex is run by students who work to make sure the society is about more than just learning to dance. Every fortnight socials take place, as a chance to get to know your potential dance partners! From laser tag, movie nights to Christmas/spring balls there is an event to suit everyone throughout the course of the year. So whether you are looking to learn a new skill, build on an existing skill or to meet new people and have a dance, Strictly Sussex is welcome to all! We also offer opportunities to those who may wish to compete in competitions ran outside of the society  as well as the chance to perform in our very own showcase this academic year 18/19 (details to come, watch this space!).

We update our Facebook reguarly with class updates and socials so check us out and get involved!
