Here at QUT Dance Society, we welcome everyone! Whether you've been dancing since your toddler days, have never danced a day in your life or have two left feet (trust us, we know the feeling). We want THIS to be the place where you can come to learn and express yourself free of judgement.
Starting uni, or even meeting new people can be daunting. It's important to make friends outside of your study area so that you have other common interest to bond over. That's why this is the ideal place to be! Our club consists of students of all faculties from Australia and all over the world. Talk about inclusive!
We don't compete. We're just a bunch of uni students who love to dance for fun and we love to do so together. Dance can also be a great stress reliever when those assessments get a bit too much. We dance to express, not impress. However, there is always the chance to show off what you've learnt at QUT or external events.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
