Hi! Welcome to the Reading University Salsa Society!

- Salsa Lessons: In the Sportspark on Thursdays
- First hour: 8-9pm Beginner Salsa Dancing
- Second hour: 9-10pm Improvers/Intermediate Salsa Dancing

RUSS also offers a '9 week beginners course' for a discounted price. You will receive 9 lessons, including two free lessons, with our coaches, paying for them in advance instead of at the door each week. Commit to dancing salsa and improve dramatically over the autumn term! Find this in the "Products" section below.
We have a standard club membership that varies only if you are a student or a non-student. This membership includes an affiliation with the club, permission to attend all classes and practises as well discounted events for the whole academic year.
A social membership is also avaliable for the year, for those who wish to only attend social dances in town with the society and be invited to congresses and competitions rather than taking part in our taught lessons.
Everyone is welcome in the RUSS family!
Often choreographed by our own student members, we perform in termly shows to give you the chance to showcase what you have learnt during the term or year. This is a phenomenal experience!
In March 2020 we had the privilege to be a part of Strictly Come Reading, as guest dancers. We look forward to working with our friends the Ballroom and Latin Society again.
Reading town has a huge salsa scene! This means that as a salsa society we can get group discounts to the coolest salsa events! These usually involve a lesson followed by social dancing.
Social dancing is a great way to meet new people and make life-long friendships. We want all our members to gain valuable experience by dancing in different settings as well as to party and have fun!
Congress and Competitions:
Congress and competitions are a fantastic way to show off what you have learnt and experience salsa in a different environment. You also learn a huge amount from the opportunity to meet famous salsa performers and teachers! We like to travel and offer members amazing experiences in the salsa world!
Competitions are an adventure filled with fun, thrill and excitement! You can meet students from other universities and share your common love for salsa dancing, and watch a spectacular array of salsa.
