Taster Sessions in Freshers’ week

New to Dancesport? Want to see what it is we do and how amazing it would be if you joined our Blues or Beginners teams? Come to one of our taster sessions this October. We are performing at a number of colleges (see your JCR or MCR for more details) and also have a special taster session at St Columba’s church (just by John Lewis) on Saturday October 11th from 16:30-18:00. You will get a demo from some of our top dancers, and get to try some steps for yourself. All totally free! So come give Dancesport a try, we would love to see you there.

New Committee

Following on from the handover of the captaincy, a new committee was duly appointed to oversee the day to day practicalities of managing such an incredible team as ours. We owe our thanks to Kit Davies, Chi-Hé Elder, Guy Emerson, Jolyon Martin, Kien Trinh, and Patricia Vlad for their work over the last year. The new committee, with a mixture of old hands and fresh faces, has a fantastic balance of all the people required to keep the CUDT engine running whilst the dancers train hard.

Varsity Victory

On the 4th May 2013, Cambridge University Dancesport Team has pulled it off yet again and won the annual varsity match against Oxford University Dancesport Team! On home turf, at the Kelsey Kerrige sports centre (frequented by the likes of George Clooney and Matt Damon) both the A and B teams were victorious, the B team by a very impressive margin. This has capped a year’s intense training by the team, during which we have brought home almost every piece of silverware for which we competed, building on similar success last year. It was also the official handover of the captaincy of Dafni Metaxa to Halliki Voolma and the Vice-Captaincy from Sophie Robertson to Kirsty Davies. We are very grateful to the outgoing captains for their hard work and dedication, and wish all the best to our incoming leaders.
