See how much our team means to our members
“I joined CUDT at the beginning of my PhD, after a 5 year break from competitive dancing and I have been a member of both second and first team. I never danced as part of a team before, but the Cambridge spirit immediately hooked me in and I have been part of the team until the end of my studies here. CUDT has allowed me to become a better dancer thanks to the professional coaching and it has been a great escape from the stress of my degree. Moreover, here I made incredible friends. Joining CUDT has been one of the best decisions I could make.”
“Dancesport is nothing if not a massive new family. We had no experience in ballroom or Latin dancing at all before joining this year, and although Grace had some ballet experience, this had stopped a good few years ago. Nonetheless, with our brilliant coaches and beginner’s captains we went from 0 ballroom experience to competing at regional and national competitions as part of the team, being so lucky as to reach a few podium places, and have become lifelong friends in the process.
Placing in 2 national finals in Blackpool and dancing in the Empress Ballroom was an absolute dream, and whatever next year holds for dance, we can’t wait!“
“I joined CUDT because I was looking for a way to continue dancing at university, but also wanted to try something new- so taking up competitive Ballroom and Latin dancing seemed like a good idea! I didn’t expect to love being part of this team as much as I do. While the standard of teaching and competition experience is phenomenal, my favourite moments are undoubtedly training as a team.
It is an amazing feeling to not only have the support of your friends behind you as you improve, but to be able to do the same for them, too.”
“The best decision I made in Cambridge was joining CUDT. Not only are they an elite dance team but they have the greatest team spirit I have witnessed and a supportive community, which means I have had the best experiences with them. I have made friends who I consider family throughout the three levels of teams, and whether you’re a beginner or an experienced dancer everyone is supportive and inclusive. I always say CUDT has been the highlight of my time in Cambridge and would recommend anyone to experience this for themselves. “
