Our dance club provides a range of different dance styles suitable for all abilities. These include: Ballet, Lyrical, Jazz, Commercial, Hip-Hop and Contemporary.
Dance is a great way to relieve yourself from all the stress of exams and revision. It is a place you can come if you’re feeling down and guarantee you will leave a class in a much happier frame of mind. All our team are welcoming and friendly, and we promise that joining this team, you will make friends for life.
Leeds Beckett Dance is also one of the most up and coming teams with constant fresh ideas and achievements, which saw us become Club of the Year in 2018, and in 2019 we won a massive 14 trophies at our competitions, beating our previous record set the year before.
We’re a really sociable group and meet up at least once a week, even when we don’t have classes! It’s a great way of getting to know everyone better and making friends for life. We also hold socials every second Wednesday, so you can forget about the stress of uni, get dressed up and have a laugh with everyone from dance.
We will hold both tasters and trials, so you can get a feel of which dance styles you would like to audition for, or even surprise yourself with a new style.
- Taster sessions - 9th and 16th October 2019 - 12:00 – 16:30 at City Studio (City Campus)
- Trials - 22nd and 24th October 2019 – 18:00-21:00 Beckett Studio 1 (Headingley Campus)
Keep an eye out on our social media pages for more information regarding taster sessions and trials, and don’t hesitate to message us if you have any questions.
You will not need to buy any kit or equipment to be part of the dance club. We do, however, have Activewear that will be available for purchase, which we encourage all of our members to buy as we like our team to look the same when attending competitions and events.
