Jazz Dance at the University of Southampton is an expanding and diverse society which provides fun and challenging classes, aimed at 3 different abilities: beginner, intermediate and advanced. Our objective is to ensure that our members enjoy themselves whilst being able to participate in a wide variety of dance styles: from traditional jazz, to contemporary jazz and commercial routines, we endeavour to appeal to everyone – if not, we always welcome suggestions and improvements so that we can extend our programme. Not only do we have 3 weekly classes, but we also perform 3 routines in the annual Pure Dance Show which is always a highlight of the dance calendar. Furthermore, there is an opportunity to audition and be a part of the Novice or Advanced Dance Squads who compete at competitions all over the country. This is an amazing experience and gives our dancers a chance to perform in a completely different environment. Additionally, every year we try to organise 2 workshops, taught by professionals from the industry which are very popular and inspiring. With classes, squads and Pure Dance, there are so many opportunities to make new friends and meet people from the other societies within USD. Most importantly, we are a friendly society, offering a range of socials throughout the year, from nights out to movie and pizza nights in, so hopefully there is something for everyone!

Jazz Dance is a fun, friendly society with something on offer for everyone!

We have three different classes: beginner, intermediate and advanced, so no matter your ability, you can come along on a Thursday evening and get involved!


Beginners- 6:15-7:15pm

Intermediate- 7:15-8:15pm

Advanced- 8:15-9:45pm


Beginners and Intermediate classes are £4 per class or £3 per class once you've purchased membership (£14 for the year or £7 for the semester)! Advanced classes are £4.50 per class or £3.50 per class once you've purchased membership!

All classes are held in the Multi-Purpose Studio which is located on the very bottom floor of the SUSU Building. 

Not only do we have three different classes, we also vary the styles of these classes, from lyrical and technical jazz, to musical theatre and commercial jazz, there really is something for everyone!

We also perform three routines in the annual Pure Dance Show alongside all the other dance societies in USD, which is a great way to see other dance styles and get to know other dancers in USD!

There is also the opportunity to audition at the beginning of the year to be part of our Intermediate or Advanced Jazz Dance Squads, and compete against other universities in competitions around the country!

We are a friendly society, and alongside classes and squads, we also offer a range of socials throughout the year, which are a great way to get to know your fellow jazz dancers even better!

We can’t wait to dance with you all!
