Ashlie Snelling

Dance society President

I’m Ashlie and I was a member of the dance society in 2016/2017 and I will be the society’s President for 2017/2018.

What has your experience been like as a society member?

I have danced all my life anyway so I couldn’t wait to join the dance society, and it didn’t let me down. The classes are of a very good standard and they accommodate every level (from beginner to more advanced). The society and it’s member are so supportive and we have a good little dance family.

It is important to balance your studies with everything else even when there are deadlines and exams etc, so having dance twice a week was very much needed, as it was such a great get away from stress that can come with your course.

What was your proudest moment?

My proudest moment currently is being elected as President !!!

Would you recommend new students to join your society? 

Do everything you are interested in first year, especially right at the beginning of the year as pretty much all societies offer free taster sessions (so definitely take full advantage of that).

Also everyone is the same boat as you, they’re nervous, not sure what to expect and they don’t know anyone, so don’t worry its normal.

And you should totally join the dance society J (not biased at all)

How often do you meet as a group throughout the year?

Last year the dance society had classes twice a week (it is not known how many times it will be this year yet). We also aimed to either go out or do something social at least once or twice a term.

How can someone join your group? At the beginning of the year we will be offering free taster sessions for all the styles we offer, so I strongly recommend coming to those. The price will range from £50-£75 a year for both contemporary and hiphop. (this is subject to change as we may offer more classes etc). Please also don’t hesitate to contact me at - if you have any further questions. I look forward to seeing you all at the freshers’ fair!
