Advance Memberships

Hey everyone, hope you've all been enjoying the summer.

For any new or returning students, you can now purchase Dancesport membership online and skip the queues! Head over to http://www.yusu.org/ Click on activities, then the societies. then 'join online.' You should be then prompted to sign in with your university email address and log in details. Find York Dancesport in the drop down menu and just complete the form.

For anyone without a university log in or who would rather pay in cash, you are still more than welcome to do so either at the lessons or Freshers' Fair. Anyone is more than welcome to the lessons, student or not! 

A lesson timetable should be appearing online very soon, so please keep an eye out but we hope to say as many of you either at Freshers' Fair or at the first lesson of term (which will most likely be Tuesday 16th October.) If anyone has any further questions, please feel free to email us at dancesport@yusu.org


Woodstock performance and upcoming social!

Hey all,

Just a heads up to let you all know that Dancesport will be performing at Woodstock again this year. The performance will be starting at 1 so make sure to all be there. We'll be doing a variety of dances, including tango and rock and roll and it would be great to see you there supporting the club.

We're also having our end of term meal next week. It will be at the Riverside Slug and Lettuce starting at 17:00 on Monday Week 10 (25th June.) There's a link to the facebook event below and everyone is more than welcome to come along. It'll be a great night and the food will all be half price, which is even better!


Hope to see you all there!
