Classes run on a weekly basis running through until Christmas, after which timetables change to accommodate show rehearsals with some classes continuing throughout the year.
Each week we will offer an alternative style of dance for people of all abilities to come and have a go at something new, from Bhangra to Pointe to Latin & Ballroom, we will try and cover it all. (Suggestions always welcome)
Commercial is a strong and sexy genre, which can combine many different styles such as hip hop, jazz and break dancing. It’s all about what you’d see in concerts, music videos and movies – so get ready strut your stuff and release that inner Beyoncé!

From musical theatre, to lyrical jazz, KCL Dance Soc’s Jazz class offers a wide variety of different jazz styles. Starting with dance warm ups and technical exercises the class will then move on to short routines which will change every couple of weeks. Each exercise and dance is taught at a pace to suit the members of the class, so there is no need to worry if you’ve never danced before or you’re feeling a little rusty!
Whether you’ve never tapped before, or you’re already a pro, KCL Dance Society’s Tap class is definitely for you! Our amazing teacher Corinna teaches at a speed to suit everyone! Comprising of a warm up, short technical exercises and finishing with a routine to perfect what we’ve learnt, you’re guaranteed to improve and have fun along the way!

Not elegant enough for ballet but not cheesy enough for Jazz hands? Then our contemporary class is the one for you. Contemporary utilises skills from both ballet and jazz, with a large focus on emotion. So if you want to dance away your stressful day and pour out those emotions then come along and join us every Monday night!
Our Hip-Hop classes, with a separate open level and choreography/urban classes, offer something for everyone. The open level class will focus on the fundamental elements of the choreography (Speed control, Isolation, Character, popping, Groove and Hits) and finally we will learn a short routine to apply these fundamentals. In the choreography/urban class you will learn a longer, more complex routine which will often incorporate all of these elements. These classes are meant to be challenging, however, they are where you’ll experience the most growth as a dancer.
Stretch & Strength
New for this year, we are introducing a class suited for every level of experience and style, aiming to improve your flexibility, strength and technique foundation. Whether you are looking to finally nail a split, improve your strength or just get an overall light workout, join us for Stretch & Strength!
As one of our most popular classes, heels is the perfect opportunity to let your hair down and get wild with hot and sexy moves! Think Beyonce, Rihanna mixed with Chicago and the burlesque movie, plus a whole lot of hip rolls. This class is a great place to improve confidence and meet new friends! Suitable for dancers of all abilities, all heights of heels welcome (or no heels if you prefer), this class is more about performance rather than technical ability, so come down and get ready to have a blast!
A space for all dancers, no matter experience and style preference, to get together and do anything from improv to choreograph, practice specific moves to getting feedback and support from other members. No matter your need or aim, this will be a space for you to do whatever (dance related) you wish with the company and support of other dance soc members.
