Welcome to Exeter's DanceSport Society. We hold weekly Latin and Ballroom classes on Thursdays and  Salsa classes on Tuesdays - plus socials and competitions throughout the year. Whether you have danced before, or are a complete beginner, all are welcome. You don't need special shoes, or clothing, you don't even need a partner!

With regular classes taught by our professional instructors, practice sessions, and socials, we are a very active society with a great team feel. In addition, we offer a special opportunity for our members to compete in national and regional competitions throughout the year, even if you've only just started to learn to dance as you compete against others of your level. The highlight of the year is always the national competition (IVDA) at the Blackpool Winter Gardens.

So if you fancy trying a different style of dance, or want a taste of what the stars do on Strictly Come Dancing, come along to our weekly classes and try one of the many dances we teach: Jive, Cha Cha, Rumba, Samba, Paso Doble, Waltz, Quickstep, Foxtrot, Tango, and Viennese Waltz. Or have a go at the fantstically fun Salsa classesa social and lively style, danced through lead and follow.
