Irish Dance Society

Creative Industries

The society provides the opportunity to learn or practice Irish Dancing and offers classes covering group ceili, soft shoe, and hard shoe.

We offer beginners, improvers and advanced classes every Friday, alternating each week between soft and hard shoes, taught by a qualified teacher.

We are also aiming to hold workshops throughout the year taught by professional dancers. The Irish Dance Society is a part of SUSUPA dance and holds auditions for a competition squad which competes all over the country for the university.

We also take part in Pure Dance, a university-wide dance show held in March each year giving members the opportunity to show off their skills learned all year in team dances choreographed in class. The classes we hold are laid back and fun and perfect for students wanting to start their dance career or those you have danced throughout their lives and want to continue their passion.

Come along and try us out, as one of the fastest growing dance societies on campus!! .

Watersports

The Southampton University Swimming Club is a multidimensional club, with competitive and recreational squads catering for swimmers of any ability. We compete in numerous competitions throughout the year and achieve great results in every competition we go to, such as BUCS (British University College Sports) nationals, team championships and Varsity. Once a week all our members come together on a Wednesday evening for our memorable socials, which involve many different fancy dresses and activities. Everyone is welcome and is sure to have an incredible time! Once a year we head on tour to a sunny location (including Tenerife, Salou and Lanzarote) for a week of fun, sun and nightlife (and a little bit of swimming). Please join our Facebook page for further information, or contact SWIMsusc@soton.ac.uk for any queries you may have.
