At Trent Dance we offer a wide variety of styles for every ability, from hip-hop to ballet. So, if you’re an experienced dancer, a newbie, or somewhere in between we have a place for you. Why not get involved, learn a new style you’ll love, and join the Trent Dance family!
We hold auditions for the advanced and intermediate teams which take place at the start of every year. We also have open classes which require no audition for those who simply want to dance for fun.
We host an annual show at the end of the first term to showcase all of our routines, as well as guest features from other NTU clubs such as FFC, Pole and Cheer.
We host our own competition, which has been a raging success in past years. We also attend competitions across the country, where we compete against different universities in a variety of categories. It is always a great day out & so much fun!
Finally, each year we perform at the Nottingham Trent and The University of Nottingham’s Varsity. This is everyone’s favourite event to perform at, and auditions are open to everyone!
I am so excited to be president for dance this year! I've been apart of the club for 2 years and joining was the best decision I ever made! My favourite thing about Trent Dance is we are one big family and I can't wait to welcome new faces into the family. I have made so many memories in my 2 years at Trent Dance, my favourites having to be performing at basketball Varsity (which Trent won!!!), smashing it at comps with everyone and of course Ocean!
Trent Dance not only allowed me to carry on dancing but I've made friends for life and my uni experience wouldn't have been the same without it! I can't wait to be back in September to get back dancing and making new memories with everyone!

How to join
After Welcome Week we hold auditions in the different styles for both advanced and intermediate teams. Everyone is welcome to these auditions no matter what your ability- come along, have fun and give it your best shot. Once the teams have been chosen, we begin training for the annual show- exciting!
If the audition process isn’t for you, we also offer open classes which run every week at both the City and Clifton campus- these classes also get to perform in our show.
Trent Dance has one of the lowest subs at Trent at just £60 in the first term and then additional fees of £10 for each of the remaining 2 terms.
There is a charge to perform at the show and attend the competitions, as well as costume fees (which we try and keep to a minimum). We also offer Trent Dance merch if you want to rep the club!.
