Our pre-team, usually known as the beginners team, provides an opportunity for beginners (see definition here) who are potential members of the main team to be trained in competitive dancing.
Beginners team members are selected on grounds of ability by the Head Coach. Most are selected at beginners team trials at the beginning of the academic year but others may be selected later in the light of the ability they demonstrate in the Club’s medals classes. All beginners team members must be members of OUDC.
The beginners team competes in the beginners events at six university circuit competitions each year including the annual varsity match against Cambridge. In some competitions beginners team couples may be able to compete in the team matches.
