What we’re all about
At the Kpop Dance Society there's a place for everyone! Whether you're a long time fan of Kpop or if you've just discovered Kpop, everyone can come and join us. We welcome everyone regardless of your dancing ability, we just want you to have fun! KDS aims to celebrate not only Korean music, but also Korean culture, through the music and dance performances! So if you want to learn the choreography to some of your favourite Kpop songs, come and join our KDS family!
Members can also make their own cover videos to post on the KDS YouTube channel, if you're interested just get in touch with the committee. We also take part in dance competitions (like LUU Dance Competition - where we won Best Group Performance 18/19) and dance shows like the annual LUU Dance show - we hold auditions for these throughout the year so keep your ears open!
We hold a weekly dance tutorial on:
1. Fridays, 19:00-21:00 in Sky & Scarlet Studio (found in the LUU Building)
2. Sundays, 18:00 - 20:00 in Jade Studio (found in the LUU Building)
If dancing isn't your thing, no worries we have you covered - KDS also hosts social events with a range of themes like Running Man, Halloween and many more! We'll have food, games and a chance to socialise with people who share the same interests.
We've been lucky to partake in dance competitions at the University of Leeds where we have achieved:
- LUU Dance Competition 2018/19 - Best Group Performance
- LUU Dance Competition 2019/20 - Best Small Group Performance
