Freshers Fair

Hi everybody,

Just a quick note to let you know - this year at Freshers Fair, our stall will be positioned in front of the stage on the 2nd floor of Central Hall (that big spaceship building by the lake). Society members will be on hand all day to answer any queries you may have, so if you want to come along and say hi, grill us on all aspects of York Dancesport, or pay membership please do, we look forward to seeing you there!

New term, new timetable

Hi everyone,

First of all a big welcome to any freshers' and returning members of Dancesport. We've got some really big plans for continuing on the huge successes of the society last year and hopefully making it even better again. Look out for the introduction of our new loyalty card scheme, which will help save the pennies and our upcoming Strictly Come Dancing socials.

We are pleased to announce our new timetable is now online. We're offering a good range of both latin and ballroom dances this year, from classics such as the waltz to the lively samba. Weekly updates will be sent by email to everyone on our mailing list (if you want to join, please just drop an email to dancesport@yusu.org) as well as being on the website. We will also inform you of any additional events, such as socials and competitions, like this as well. You can also join our Facebook group and get to know your fellow dancers here.
