Dance Imperial Show 2016

Dog TemplateDance Imperial is a society which brings together the 6 dance societies of Imperial, enabling collaboration and better communication between them. This year they hosted their second annual show, where each dance society was able to showcase their best dances of the year alongside the other dancers of Imperial. The show also saw collaboration pieces between different societies, multiple dance styles being incorporated into routines. The show was a sell-out success, filling all 200 seats every night for 3 nights!

Want to see our performances again? We performed a traditional belly dance choreography in the first half, and a tribal fusion choreography in the second half of the show.


End of Term Showcase 2016

Dog TemplateEvery year we host a showcase at the end of March which gives our members the opportunity to perform all the choreographies which they have learnt in class throughout the year, as well as any solos or group dances they might have prepared outside of class. This year was great fun - we even had professional belly dancers close the show: Zoku Tribal, Roxane Grant and Curious Verses all gave beautiful performances!
