Location: Wessex Hall Dining Room
Times: 2:00 - 4:00pm
Other Info: We use this time to go over routines and moves we have learned in lessons, to learn routines we have choreographed for shows, or to practice for upcoming competitions. Its a good oppurtunity to practice your moves, ask any questions you might have, and to practice your social dancing skills.
Competitions: We compete at Inter-University and Varsity competitions across the country. Competitions are a great chance to get dressed up and have a fun day out with RUBLS. Its always fun to see how other universities dance, make friends and we find it a really good way to see how our dancers progress. We have had some great success in competitions but our main aim of the competitions is always FUN so we welcome everyone to join us for competitions from complete beginners to advanced dancers!
We perform in at least 2 shows or showcases a year - one at Christmas and one before Easter - with all the other dance societies from Reading University. Everyone is welcome to join the show routines.

Non-student Membership = £35 for the year
