About Dance
Queen Mary Dance Company aims to bring people together through the love of dance. Our 21/22 team will train and compete in the styles of hip-hop, jazz, contemporary, tap, and ballet! We strive to improve the technique of each dancer as well as creating new, original and exciting routines that we perform at many different competitions throughout the year and across the country. Our rehearsals are intense, yet thoroughly enjoyable and there is opportunity for all members to input their own creativity and ideas. We work at a high level to create routines that will push the capabilities of each dancer as well as exploring different music and performance styles.We also hold an annual showcase, where we perform our routines and choreographies from the year. This is where our members will get the opportunity to put forward ideas and choreographies, to display to friends/family and members of the public.Also, following the success of last year we will be reinstating our QMDC internal competition where all of our members will compete against each other and perform to our alumni judges!We are so proud of our continued success at QMDC, winning trophies in all styles and categories, as well as individual awards such as best dancer and best team spirit. As always we aim to excel our accomplishments in the upcoming year, and win more trophies for the company and we hope you can join us!!TrainingEach style will train for 1hour 30mins each week and the exact time-table will be released soon so keep your eyes peeled!Personal FitnessQMSU offers a gym on the Mile End campus, Qmotion, as well as a sister-gym in Charterhouse Square, Fitness to Practice, both with competitive student membership rates.
