Bollywood Dance Society
The Bollywood Dance Society aims to teach niche styles of Indian dancing to Cardiff University students. With the use of exhilarating music, energetic dance and colourful costumes Bollywood Dance Society guarantee an electrifying experience for all! Whether you are new to Bollywood or not, we will make it easy for you to learn new choreography, with rhythms and melodies that will ensure you to have a memorable experience.
We have recently been named the Best Arts and Performance Society in the United Kingdom! Click here to read more!
We offer bollywood and classical classes every week physically and virtually during university term time. We now have physical classes in the Students' Union's Y Stwidio! However, there is a limit of 15 students allowed in the room at once, so the spaces are first come first served basis.
To attend a physical session you must do BOTH:
- Either be a member (all classes free once you buy our membership) OR pay £1 ticket fee per class. You can make both payments via the SU website.
- Sign up on the Google form (only after purchasing the ticket for the class or the membership!)
If the spaces all get filled up for a session, they will also be available via zoom. However, you MUST still complete both of the above but buy the 'virtual session' ticket if you are not a Bollysoc member.
Weekly Classes this term (Y Stwidio in SU and Zoom):
Classical - Tuesday 6pm-6:45pm
Bollywood - Tuesday 6:45pm-7:30pm
At the end of each semester, we anticipate that members will be excited to show off their practiced routines, particularly at the Winter Showcase in December and our end of year performances at Cardiff Fringe Festival and Go Global in March. If restrictions are lifted, we will be able to go ahead with these events. If you would like to part in these performances, make sure you have purchased your membership so we can provide you with costumes! Scroll down to the bottom of the page to get yours now!

Alongside learning the routines, we will hold regular socials to allow members to integrate and get to know one another better, including themed socials designed to embrace the Indian culture. It gives a chance for people of all backgrounds to mix and pursue their passion for dancing. Our previous socials have included movie nights, Bollywood-themed club nights, karaoke, pub socials, bowling, and laser tag! As of now we won't be able to have any face-to-face socials, but look out for our virtual socials and activities!
Bollywood dancing is a great way to keep on your feet and keep fit so come along to our Give It A Go sessions to get a real glimpse and bolly feel!
