Welcome to the University of Strathclyde Dance Club!
The club offers a wide range of dance styles including ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, lyrical and hip hop. Sessions are taught at varying levels and open to anyone, so previous dance experience is not always required.
SUDC takes part in many events throughout the year, including national competitions, as well as concluding the year with our annual showcase. These events are great opportunities to improve skills and make friends, and are fun to take part in, however none are compulsory.
The club recognises the importance of enjoying the social side of university life and therefore organise many social events throughout the year. SUDC’s ever-growing members and committee work hard to create a welcoming community for anyone wanting to dance and have fun!
Any questions? Ask away, contact details to reach student committee members can be found on the email link on this page or find us on our social media channels to message us directly.
Membership – what do I need?
1. Sports Union Membership – this is a flat £36 fee for the year (or £23 for one semester) which goes directly back to the club to fund various club activities and operations, including:
- Personal accident and public liability insurance
- Coaching fees, competition entry and transport costs, club equipment and external facility hire
2. Sports Club Bolt-on Fee – we also charge a £15 joining fee for the year which is charged to subsidise additional sport specific costs, such as show venues and costumes. This fee is charged on top of the Sports Union membership and again, goes directly back to the club and participants taking part in our activities.
3. Facility Access – as we train in the University’s £31m Strathclyde Sport facility, a pay-as-you-go facility fee of £3 is charged to access each session. However, if you are a member of Strathclyde Sport gym you do not need to pay this fee and can access training for free. To join Strathclyde Sport please visit the University website here.
