We are a passionate society where 'Every Day is Dance Day!'
We hold weekly classes in Hip Hop, Contemporary, Jazz, and Commercial.
We have SHOW SQUADS for everyone of all abilities and COMPETITION SQUADS for those who have successfully made it into the competition team of their chosen discipline. In either squad, Dance Squad is a really fun, social club to be a part of. Our 'Competition Squads' for Contemporary, Jazz, Hip Hop and Lyrcial compete at national university competitions across the country and compete on Derby Day. Our 'Show Squads' work on dance technique, learn versatile routines and have the opportunity to perform in dance showcases and the UEA Dance Show each year. We are a hugely passionate society and we welcome everyone to come along to our classes. We cater for everyone's ability, no matter if you are advanced or are dancing for the first time! We encourage everyone to try out as many disciplines as possible!

Additional Cost of Sport Ranges
The additional cost of sport project, which was created by the Students’ Union, alongside uea+sport, is designed to give prospective members information on the range of costs they may face in joining their chosen sport.
This range should be taken as guidance. For compulsory costs, this price includes uea+sport membership which is £55, and you only need to pay once to join all of our clubs.
When considering additional costs, some clubs may have none and others may have further costs. This is often dependent on the level of competitiveness for the sport you get involved in, and so recreational or socially playing may be cheaper. You may also have equipment which can be used between multiple sports, for example shoes or gum shields.
For any questions, please ask the sport club for specific further information, or email@example.com for further information on the project.
