UCC Dance Club is dedicated to providing the best college dance experience for all of its members. Our club prides itself with being one which is open to all levels of dancers whether you are just looking to try something new, make friends, shake off a long day at college or if you want to improve your dance technique and dance competitively at a high standard in one of our teams.
Now in our 15th year of running we offer open and advanced classes in Irish Dance, Jazz, Contemporary, Ballet and Hip-hop. This year we are super excited to announce the addition of Dancercise to our weekly timetable for those that want a full body workout to a dancing rhythm.
Within UCC, our club performs at various events run by other clubs and courses as entertainment. Lat year we performed at several college balls! We also hold an end-of-year charity showcase where all of our members get to show off what they have done throughout the year! However, our main event is Inter-varsities. This is a competition between numerous Universities and Institutes around the country. All colleges involved come together once a year and compete against each other and show of their dancing talent.
During the Inter-varsities of 2015 held in UL, UCC brought home 1st place in Jazz and 2nd place in hip hop. In 2016, Inter-varsities was held in Trinity College Dublin and each category did UCC so proud, they were amazing. In 2017, we travelled to NUIG Galway where we were strong competitors in each category and brought home first place in the Hip-hop category! This year we are thrilled to announce that UCC will be hosting the dance inter-varsities! We are so excited for march already!
Every year we do our best to give what we can to charity. In addition to our end of year showcase, last year we hosted the ‘UCC event of the year’ – ‘So UCC thinks it can Dance’ where different clubs and societies worked with a number of our teachers to perform a dance in front of a panel of Judges! The event itself raised an astonishing 1452 euro for the CUH charity, a worthy cause.
We are so happy to be linked to such an incredible charity again this year and we can’t wait for all our fundraising events throughout the year. We will keep you posted on all the events through Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram and of course our Website.
The club is open to new aspiring dancers all year round, our timetable is displayed on our Facebook page and under the heading training timetable.
