Ballroom and Latin Dance Society

We are Southampton University's Ballroom and Latin Dance Society. We encourage and teach dance at both a social and competitive level. Weekly classes for all standards are taught by professional teachers and we also compete regularly throughout the year against other universities across the country.

We perform demonstrations at local events and organise Southampton's very own Strictly Come Dancing every year! We are a very friendly and welcoming community open to all for enjoyment, fitness and involvement in the student union through our love of Ballroom and Latin dance...

'Keeeep Dancing!'.
