UCC dance club is a friendly, welcoming club open to all students within the University. The club consists of 5 different styles of dance; Hip hop, Jazz, Irish, Contemporary, and Ballet. Within UCC, our club performs at various events run by other clubs and courses as entertainment. 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. This year Inter-varsities will be held in NUIG on the 8th of March and the teachers are already planning their routines and we are so excited for whats in store.
Adding to this, the club does a yearly show in aid of a charity, displaying all our routines from throughout the year as well as a few surprises that the audience love. Last year we raised a huge amount of money for The Irish Guide Dogs Association and we hope to meet that again for our chosen Charity this year which is Pieta House. We are so happy to be linked to such an incredible charity 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.
