Dance Club at Sportos Dance Off 2022

Dance Club

Dance Club features Jazz, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Ballet and Tap squads

The Dance Club offers different memberships for those who want to dance competitively at national competitions, or to perform at dance events (including Sportos' Dance Off - one of Team UOP's biggest charity events), or to simply come to our weekly play classes for a bit of fun!

The styles we offer across the different memberships are Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Contemporary and Hip Hop. We also offer varied classes which introduce to different styles of dance we wouldn’t usually do. The Dance Club holds the title of RAG club of the year for 2021, 2022 & 2023!
