Fancy yourself as a contestant on Strictly? Join the Dancesport Team!

You don’t need any prior experience. And you don’t even need to bring a partner!

We love welcoming all levels, from complete beginners who have never danced before to advanced dancers! 

We are extremely lucky to have two professional dancers as our fabulous coaches! You'll get the chance to try Latin American and Ballroom dance, with the added bonus of learning other routines, such as Rock 'n' Roll!

We are extremely proud to have been awarded 'Sport & Team Leicester Student Group of the Year' in 2020 from the Student Union.

Why not give our Student Group a try to find out exactly why we are worthy winners of this award!


So why join Leicester Dancesport?

1. Competitions:

Leicester Dancesport travels regularly across the country to compete in Latin and Ballroom Dance competitions against other universities. Events culminate in a fabulous weekend for Nationals at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool; the home of Ballroom! 

This year we became National Offbeat Champions!

There is absolutely no requirement to compete if you don't want to; we hold plenty of social classes and lessons where you can simply enjoy learning to dance and get to know the rest of the team! 

But don’t be daunted – competitions have a fantastic atmosphere and offer great opportunities to meet people from other universities.

2. Leicester Friendly Competition 

Every November, we are fortunate enough to hold the first compeition of the academic year, with many competitors from various universities! It is always a great event as it is a particularly relaxed and fun competition.

As part of the competition, we include some fun dances - in the past this has included the 3 person Cha Cha Cha!

3. Foxtrot - Our Team Mascot

Let us introduce you to our Team Mascot, Foxtrot! 

This adorable fox travels with us to our competitions and wears a bow tie to fit right in with all the fabulous dancers!

We set up an instagram for Foxtrot this year so why not head over to Instagram to check out the account - @leicester_foxtrot

4. Socials

We hold regular socials as a team which is a great way to get to know other members!

We enjoyed a variety of different socials over the past year and have continued to hold socials virtually over lockdown.
