BALADS

Welcome to the University of Birmingham Ballroom and Latin American Dance Society page or as we call ourselves BALADS!

Our classes cater for all abilities whether you are already a master of Ballroom and Latin or a self-confessed owner of two left feet, our dancers and teachers are here to help you improve in a friendly atmosphere. We provide classes in all areas of Ballroom and Latin as well as Rock & Roll, private lessons and an opportunity to become part of our performance team!

The great thing about our society is that you can take your dancing skills as far as you like! As well as providing lessons, we offer the opportunity to take dance medal tests to see how you are improving. We take part in both friendly and varsity Ballroom and Latin dance competitions, throughout the academic year, all over the country giving you the opportunity to compete and often make friends with students from many other universities. At the end of the year BALADS also make the annual trip to compete in Blackpool- a very sparkly affair that is not to be missed!
