Imperial Dance Company

Competitions

What teams do we enter?

We enter both a beginners and advanced team for ballet, contemporary, jazz and tap.

Who is it open to?

We welcome anyone to audition, whether or not you have previous dance experience or been in dance company before. The auditions happen a few weeks into the autumn term. We only ask that you are fully committed to being part of the team. This means attending all rehearsals and classes for you team style/level. You should also check on the information sheet given at the audition that you are able to attend all of the required competitions. It really is a great opportunity, with the chance to make lifelong friends so definitely give it a go!

What Competitions do we go to?

We normally attend at least 2 competitions. Last year we went to 3 competitions: EUMDS Dance Off 2016, KCL Just Dance It 2016 and University of Manchester Dance Competition 2016. This year we are going to Cardiff and Liverpool University Competitions.

Who choreographs the pieces?

Our wonderful directors on the committee are in charge, they will normally choreograph the advanced piece with other members of the society volunteering to choreograph the beginners. Last year our professional ballet teacher choreographed advanced ballet. Every year we are on the lookout for new choreographers so do please get in touch if you have any ideas, dancecompany@imperial.ac.uk.
