RUTAM is a fantastic opportunity to dance at uni! It is a great chance 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! Whether you have danced before or are a beginner that would like to learn something new – come along and give it a go!


Our teachers are students who are experienced dancers that teach classes in a variety of styles, such as tap, lyrical, contemporary, commercial, and jazz, 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.
