I've video'd it (quite poorly) and posted it on Facebook. Please click here to view it!
So there are 4 videos.
There are also 2 groups. So choose one! It'd be fun if your friend and yourself were in 2 different groups, because you'd face each other and

More info on our website: http://www.ucludance.com/4/post/2012/11/our-flashmob.html
Amongst the preparation of the exciting Freshers' show (which is in the last week of term!), we have many other things going on !
1. We are planning to hold a FLASH MOB! Adrienne will be teaching the routine in her Street Dance Class this Wednesday. IT WILL BE AWESOME! It's to DJ EARWORM'S 'Blame it on the Pop' (Click to watch on youtube!)
The flashmob is to promote awareness of AIDS, and will be performed in random places in UCL on Wednesday 28th November. More information up soon, but get as many people as you can interested, involved and dancing - even non-members (who can join later ;) )
2. We've held our first volunteering session at 2 different schools. Videos and pictures to follow! The kids are great; keen and enthusiastic. If you're interested in Volunteering, please hit up Walton for more information!
3. MOST IMPORTANTLY:
Deadline 5pm Tuesday 20th! Just another reminder that the Choreography bids for our big Bloomsbury Show are coming up this week. This is our society’s biggest event of the year it showcases loads of different styles and all our society’s talent. So we're looking for lots of brilliant and creative choreography proposals! Absolutely all styles and levels welcome and previous choreography experience isn’t a prerequisite for proposing. So if you think you'd be interested in creating a dance for our show, keep reading!
The proposals will be held:
When? Saturday, November 24th, 1400-2100
Where? Chadwick G.08
What do you need for the proposal?
· A completed Choreography Proposal Form (attached to this email) returned by 5pm on Tuesday 20th November.
· A detailed concept of your dance, including: the music you are going to use, the number of dancers you want (minimum 8 dancers, maximum 16, you may dance in your own dance).
· Please prepare 30 seconds of choreography to your chosen music so we can get a feel for the dance.
What is the commitment? - If your dance is picked, rehearsals won't begin until next term. You will have an average of 2 hours rehearsal a week as well as full cast rehearsals every Sunday. The show itself will be on the 7th, 8th, and 9th of March, so time commitment will be very high in the week or so leading up to the show dates. Everyone is welcome to propose, but please consider the commitment to the show before you do as it will make it very difficult for us if we pick your piece and you subsequently drop out!
How to get a slot? – Reply to email@example.com with the form attached stating a time that you are free on the 24th to come to the proposals and we will get back to you with a slot. Please be on time for your slot as we will be on a tight schedule! If you can't make it on the 24th, reply and let us know when you are free and we'll arrange another time to see you, we want everyone to have a chance to choreograph!
If selected, be aware you will be required to attend a pre-audition meeting on either Sunday 25th or Monday 26th

GOOD NEWS! We have a new improved class timetable!
Sundays 11am - Beginner's Contemporary in Mandela Studio
Wednesdays 6:30-7:30pm All levels Street Jazz in Lewis Studio (early session)
Wednesdays 7:30-8:30pm Advanced Contemporary in Lewis Studio
Wednesday 8:30-9:30pm All levels Street Jazz in Lewis Studio (late session)
We have started running two Street Jazz classes on the Wednesday night in order to control numbers coming to class. Please only come to one of them - they will be identical choreo, but hopefully a much more manageable size where you can spread out and give it your all!
More about our contemporary clases:
It will be held at 11am-12 on Sunday mornings in the Mandela Studio in the Bloomsbury Fitness gym! Our teacher is an ex student and former UCLU Dance Society member Jess Vas, and here's what she has to say:
"Hi everyone! I’m Jess, and I’m teaching beginner’s contemp on Sundays from 11-12 in the Mandela Studio.
If I could summarise my class in one word, it’d be ‘exploring’. So each week, we’re go
nna try and experience something different. Some weeks we’ll be drilling the basics oftechnique, some weeks we’ll be focussing on musicality, and some weeks we’ll be looking at movement quality. But at the end of the day, I’m really hoping you feel:
1) that you’ve opened your mind and pushed yourself out of your comfort zone, even if it does feel awkward (‘cus that’s how you grow) and
2) had fun! Because that’s what dance is all about.
It’s a conversation too, so if you’ve got any requests for class, let me know either in person or pop me a FB message. (It’s your class after all.) And if you’re a more advanced dancer, don’t you worry – I’ve got lots of tricks up my sleeve so you can get just as much out of this class as everyone else.
Okay, end of spiel. See you guys on Sunday!"
Its going to be AMAZING!
