Our Achievements

Our dancers go off for competitions throughout the year (university circuit and open circuit) and do very well both individually and as a team.

Our team is ranked in the top 15 teams out of more than 200 teams across the UK! In 2018-2019, we competed in multiple competitions where we won the team-match at Leicester and Kent in addition to many strong individual performances.

On the 8th of February 2020, we organised the Southern Universities' Dance Competition in Farnborough bringing together more than 600 dancers and spectators from 12 universities in the southern UK. We also brought the second-biggest team to the competition.

We won Society of the Year 2019 at University of London Purples and Laurels Awards and our members picked up over 15 awards at a very successful ceremony.

Individually, our dancers have consistently been in the finals of their categories and a few notable ones are:

 

Pre-Amateur Latin finalists at the European Championships - Shihua Bai & Anastasia Yermakova
 

IVDC Novice Ballroom Champions – Morrison "Smartboy" Kong and Amanda Chung
