Welcome to Sussex Dance!
Sussex Dance Society is the main dance society at the University of Sussex. No matter whether you are an experienced dancer or a complete beginner, there is something for everyone and we hope you come along and join us.
We offer weekly classes from Street to Contemporary, Kpop to Tap, and Yoga to Ballet! You can try out all the different dance styles and show off your new skills in our various performances throughout the year. You can pay per class, or buy a termly or annual society membership to get all of your classes for free.
There are no auditions to join the society and everyone is welcome; including non-students. Our teachers aim to share their passion for dance and help you improve your moves in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
This year we have six dance troupes who will be entering competitions and performing in shows regularly. We have Street, Ballet, Tap, Contemporary, Bollywood/Bhangra and Jazz Troupes! We hold auditions at the beginning of both the Autumn and Spring Term and we are very excited to see some new faces. Please look out for the dates and times of the auditions on here and on our Facebook group. The link for our Facebook page can be found on the right.
On our regular socials we go out and get to know lots of people who share the same passion for dance and enjoy a great night together. We have various themes to our socials which are fun to get involved in! There will be a variety of socials; including nights out, joint events with other societies and non-drinking socials, such as dinner, movie nights or ice-skating.
Sussex Dance is all about having a great time, so put on your dancing shoes and come along! Go to our Facebook page to find our weekly schedule!
