We are the official sports club for Dancesport at UEA, encompassing Ballroom and Latin American dancing. We offer professional tuition and also social dancing, in addition to representing UEA at university league competitions across the country! We learn a total of 14 dances so if you've ever seen Strictly Come Dancing or Dancing with the Stars, those are the dances we learn. The Ballroom dances include a Slow Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Slow Foxtrot and Quickstep. The Latin entails Chachacha, Samba, Paso Doble, Rumba and Jive. We also host a variety of socials to get to know everyone better and have a bit of fun!
