About Us

Welcome to the Birkbeck UoL Dancesport Club!

In 2023/24 we will continue to host regular recreational and coached sessions throughout the year, with industry-leading tuition from our brilliant instructors. We are a really social group, planning lots of meet-ups, events, and seasonal balls! We cater for both competitive and social dancing, and all levels are welcome!

Our teachers include the fabulous Petar Daskalov & James Zia - multiple time International Latin Champions & the wonderful Thomas Purdy & Harley Nelson - well decorated National Ballroom Champions. 

We also compete across the country in university competitions, such as at the IVDA Championships in Blackpool in the grand Winter Gardens venue. 

We charge a membership fee to help fund the group's activity. This is heavily subsidised by Students' Union funding, as we continue to make extra-curricular activity at Birkbeck as accessible as possible - as it should be! If you are a student from another UoL institution, a Birkbeck alumni, staff member or guest, we ask you contribute a slightly larger amount to ensure a fair and transparent deal for Birkbeck students, and to keep groups affordable and sustainable.

We can't wait to meet you and start the year off right!
