Latin classes cover: Cha Cha Cha, Jive, Samba, Rumba and Paso Doble.

 

Our Achievements

Our dancers go off for competitions regularly throughout the year (university circuit and open circuit) and do extremely well individually and as a team.

Our proudest achievements for the academic year 2017-2018 are making the semi-final for Team Match in the Inter-Varsity Dance Competition (IVDC) in the Winter Gardens, Blackpool. Our A team also won the Team Match at Kent and our team is also ranked in the top 15 teams out of more than 200 teams across the UK!

We also won the University of London Purples & Laurels Society of the Year 2018 and our members picked up over 10 different awards at a very successful ceremony.

Individually, our dancers have consistently been in the finals of their categories and the most notable ones are:

 

Pre-Amateur Latin National League Champions - Shihua Bai & Anastasia Yermakova
 

Open Masters Intermediate Ballroom Champions - Tom Schnabel & Pim Ungphakorn
 


 
Paulius & Ina, Kris & Timea, Tom & Pim, and Olivia, Jamie & Gergo at Bournemouth Summer Festival
