If you want to get even more involved we have three award winning competition squads, which travel around the country to other universities to compete.
Rewind is our Advanced hip hop, street and break dancing crew. We enter three competitions each year against other universities and Rewind have always placed very highly! Taking home a 3rd in 'Go Hard or Go Home' at Nottingham Trent in 2014 and 2nd in 2016. We also won 3rd in Bucks New University in 2015 as well as 3rd at Cardiff University and the Audience Choice Award in 2017! Every year all three squads also compete in the Loughborough University competition, which host for over 30 different universities. Rewind show a variety of styles in their performances such as popping, whacking, LA locking, house and krump!
Troupe is our most successful crew as a beginners hip hop crew and we also enter three competitions each year to show off our moves! We've brought back first place out of 30+ unis at Loughborough in 2012, Bucks New Uni and Nottingham Trent in 2014 just to name a few! We also placed third at both Bucks New Uni and Nottingham Trent in 2015 and this year, we won 3rd at Nottingham Trent and 1st at Cardiff! We are on the search for passionate and diverse performers who love to show what they can do!
Classics is our classical dance squad with routines in Ballet, Jazz and Contemporary. In 2014, we had a fantastic year at Durham University, bringing home a 1st in the Wildcard category, a 2nd in Ballet and a 2nd in Contemporary. Also in 2016, the ballet squad placed 3rd at Buckinghamshire New University. Coming into 2017 was no different- we placed 1st in Ballet and won the performance award for our contemporary routine at Cardiff University!
We are looking for ladies and gents with amazing technique and skill. UWE Dance holds an Annual Show at the end of the year where both squads and classes combine to present a night to remember for their friends and families, which always sells out! We also try to get involved with the community in any way we can by taking part in performances outside of university, whenever the opportunity arises. As a club, we were runners up at the Sports Ball this year for best sports committee of the year and the best sports club of the year. We are an extremely close knit group who love to meet new people and new talent. Don't be afraid to try out, we dont bite!
