Welcome to the Aston University Dance Club page for 2018/19
We are one of the largest student-led dance clubs at Aston University with over 80 members, recently being awarded MOST IMPROVED CLUB OF THE YEAR 2016/17 by Aston Students’ Union!
Aston University Dance Club is one of the largest student led performing arts club’s on campus. The club currently provides classes in Hip-Hop and Contemporary, which are held once a week. The club also enters Loughborough Dance Competition once a year.
Our classes are aimed at people of all abilities from beginners to advanced dancers and comprises of routine choreography, body conditioning and performance. We cater our club to individuals who want to try something new and those who want to keep active whilst at university.
Loughborough University Dance Competition is the UK’s biggest inter-university dance competition and our club’s main focus of the year. With both teams made up of only some members post auditions. Loughborough 2017 was our most successful year to date, with Aston University being awarded 1st place in the Novice Hip-Hop category, which was an amazing achievement for both the team and the Club.
In more recent years the club has aimed to promote more of a social experience for our members. With social classes for non-competition members. As well as providing social trips and inter club events. We have also started to take part in
fundraising activities for various charities throughout the year. With the clubs growth and continuous development shown through Aston Students’ Union awarding the club Most Improved Club of the year 2016/17.
This year there will be a particular focus on providing a wider variety of social events and activities for all Club members, enabling you to get to know each other outside of class and settle in to uni life a little easier! This will include both drinking and non-drinking ‘seshes’, as well as team-based activities, for you to get involved in, so hopefully there’ll be something for everyone! This year, our events will include:
Weekly Wednesday night ‘sesh’ at the Students’ Union, in which we bond as a team and later head out with the other Aston sports clubs
BBQ meet and greet
Our Dance Club social!
Dinner & Dance - one of our most popular social events towards the end of the academic year
And many more!
Follow all our social medias to keep up to date on all events and classes!
