RUTAM is a fantastic opportunity to dance at uni! Whether you have danced before or are a beginner that would like to learn something new – come along to our free taster session in Freshers week!
Why join? Dance is an amazing opportunity for you to make new friends; develop or learn a skill; keep fit; and simply to have fun and make the most of your time at uni!

Our teachers are experienced dancers that teach classes in a variety of styles, as well as in a variety of skill levels, so do not feel daunted if you have no experience in certain areas of dance. Just try something new! They will aim to improve your technique and choreograph brilliant routines for us to learn, perform and, most of all, enjoy.

Tap, Modern, Lyrical, Contemporary, Commercial & Jazz

Social Events in RUTAM are always fun and easy to get involved with. We like to include all members, so whether you're the life and soul of the party or prefer socialising with a movie and a takeaway; we cater for all! This year has seen many fancy dress socials, meals out, film nights, weekends away and the Dance Societies Ball. Pictures below!
