Dance Imperial (DI) unites the dance societies at Imperial. We organise collaborative ventures, workshops and performances between Dance Club, Dance Company, ICSM Dance, Funkology, Belly dancing and Pole & Aerial Society. The dance clubs cater for all levels from beginner to expert, many have different classes for different abilities and some don’t require specific equipment or a partner. It's never been easier for new students to see and try everything the Imperial dance societies have to offer, or for old regulars to try something new!
Keep an eye out for our showcase of all the societies talent at the Dance Imperial Show 2018, our signature event. With over 6 dance societies and 18 different styles of dance, the DI Show brings forth specially crafted collaboration pieces between societies as well as showcasing their award-winning competition teams. Each year is a sell-out success and the event was shortlisted for event of the year in 2015 and 2016.
The DI show is and remains the only dance-only show at Imperial College London.
One of DI's core values includes giving the opportunity for dancers from one style to develop their skill portfolio and diversify their creative choreographing. Keep an eye out for our regular workshops and the autumn workshop weekend, with 2 whole days of classes from all 6 DI societies & external instructors of styles not currently taught at imperial (last year included K-Pop and West Coast Swing). We are always open to suggestions, just drop us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and will try and bring an instructor in!
