What more can we say other than bring on 2017/18!!! 

This year we expect to compete around the country, at LUU's own interuni competition and we are hosting our own competition!!! This has never been done at the University of Leeds before and we are so proud to be leading the way. So if you are ready for what is to be the most exciting year yet for our society make sure you join us and come take part in the fun.

 

The Show

Every year LUU put on a fantastic performance that brings together all of the university's dance societies. All of our dancers have the opportunity to get involved if they wish and it's a great opportunity for you to demonstrate what you've learnt over the year and to show your housemates, family and fellow dancers what you're made of. This week is always extremely sociable, exciting and fun and is the highlight of the year for most of our dancers.

 

Socials

As much as we love our dance we also love our socials. These are our chances to get together, get to know people from different classes and levels and have an amazing time. We host a whole variety of socials and love to dress up too! But the best way to enjoy our socials is to just come along!! You're guaranteed a fabulous night. 

And what better way to end the year than the LUU Dance Ball. A time to get together with not only our dance society but also all dance societies and have an absolutely incredible evening!
