The ballet society is for all those with a love of ballet. We hope to cater for everyone by providing relaxed and fun ballet classes at 4 levels: beginners, improvers, intermediate, and advanced. So whether you have been dancing for as long as you can remember or are looking to try ballet for the first time, or even if you are just looking for a great way to stay flexible and fit, we hope you come along and get involved. As well as ballet classes, we have an active social calendar with events ranging from visits to the theatre to nights out on the town. We also run competition squads who have competed very successfully at inter-university dance competitions. Regular class attendees are also invited to perform in the annual 'Pure Dance' show, which showcases the work of Southampton University Dance Societies.

Hello! Here at UoS Ballet Society, we are your port of call for all things ballet, whether you’re a complete beginner or have been dancing for years!

🩰

With classes at the Beginner, Improver, Intermediate and Advanced levels, as well as weekly Pointe classes, we have something for everyone- all you need is an interest, however big or small, in this beautiful style of dance! We know that lots of newbies feel intimidated by ballet, but we can guarantee that you will fall in love with it just as all of our members have, and with the amazing support of our incredible teacher Stacey, and committee members who are always more than happy to offer advice or support, classes with UoS Ballet are guaranteed to become your favourite places to be

We can confidently say that whilst we put on high quality classes for you to improve and develop as a dancer, the main aim here is to have fun and the experience of ballet with us had reignited the passion of so many of our members due to the laid-back and cheery atmosphere we’ve worked hard to create in class!

🥰

And for those of you wanting more than the regular weekly classes, you’ll get the opportunity to audition for our competition squads (which get to travel around the country to other universities!), take part in themed classes and lots of socials throughout the year (with a variety of alcohol & non-alcohol events) and best of all, be a part of our incredible USD-wide dance show, Pure Dance! If you have any questions feel free to contact us via our Instagram @uosballet or through our Facebook page University of Southampton Ballet Society; and keep checking our socials for updates about what’s coming up for UoS Ballet

 We can’t wait to welcome you in the Autumn and are sure you’ll fall in love with our wonderful society

 Sending lots of ballet love, from your UoS Ballet Committee
