Who We Are
We are the official sports club for Ballroom and Latin American dancing at UEA.
We offer professional dance tuition along with social dancing events, as well as the chance to represent UEA at university league competitions across the country.
We learn over 14 dances, so if you've ever seen Strictly Come Dancing or Dancing with the Stars, those are the dances we learn. The Ballroom dances include a Slow Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Foxtrot and Quickstep. The Latin entails Cha cha cha, Samba, Paso Doble, Rumba, and Jive. Swing dances like Rock'n'Roll and Charleston are also taught as special workshops.
We also host a variety of socials to get to know everyone better and have a bit of fun!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org for further information on the project.
