Ballroom & Latin Dance


do you love to dance or just want the chance to learn?

Then you've come to the right place!

Here at the Ballroom and Latin Society we are all about having fun whilst learning to dance! 

We welcome dancers of all levels - you do not need any previous experience to become a member.

Do not worry if you'd like to have a go but don't have a partner - you'll dance with many different partners during our lessons. With weekly classes, every member can learn new routines and improve their technique at their own pace.

Our dance teacher is Diane Black, a British open dance champion and is qualified to teach at both FE and HE level (she's amazing!!). 

Dances include but are not limited to:

Cha Cha, Waltz, Jive, Tango, Samba, Quickstep, Salsa

There's a dance to suit all and we each have our favourites but we're always willing to learn new moves if there is a specific dance you want to try, just let us know!

We have loads planned so be sure to follow our Facebook and Instagram Pages to stay in the loop! 

Our plans for 2021/2022

The Lessons 

September to December is all about nailing the basics and getting to know one another! Once the basics are down then you are on your way to ballroom stardom! You can take dance at your own pace and attend lessons as much or as little as you'd like but the more you come the faster you'll learn and improve! 

Not sure if the Ballroom and Latin Society is the right choice for you ? Don't worry! We will be hosting Give It a Go sessionsin Re-Freshers 2022 for you to try it out!

The Competitions

January to July is an exciting time for our society as we get ready to show off our new moves at competition! (Don't worry if that's not your thing, it's voluntary and those who participate will have amazing cheerleaders). We're also planning a dance event in the Atrium to showcase all our fantatsic moves whilst raising money for Mental Health Awareness.

The Socials 

Getting to know one another is a major part of our society too as we mix and swap dance partners, we've got lots of socials planned to help make this easier and fun! I hear SALSA NIGHT calling our names already at Revolution De Cuba but that's just the beginning, we've got lots of other socials planned too, including Movie Nights, Cocktail Making and much more! We've also got big plans to visit the iconic Blackpool Tower Ballroom with a detour to the Pleasure Beach while we're there.
