Dance Club Times
Oxford Ice Dance Club Membership
Due to the rink opening hours over the festive period there will be no dance club on Tuesday 28th December 2021. The first dance club of the year will be on Tuesday 4th January 2022.
Dance Club is from 7.30pm to 8.30pm on Tuesdays.
Join Oxford Ice Dance Club for practice, social dancing, learning dances and the advanced dances. The session runs from 7.30-8.30pm every Tuesday. There is half an hour of practice and private lessons (for full members) followed by half hour dance interval at 8.00pm, which include dances from novice (see list below) to BIS Level 10 (e.g. Paso Doble and Quickstep).
Visitors are welcome, see below for guest fees
What standard should I be?
To get the most out of Dance Club, skaters should be able to glide on one leg, can do forward inside and outside edges on both feet and perform a controlled stop. You are then ready to start learning the forward dnaces (approximatly in order of difficulty):
Golden Skaters Waltz
Canadian Cha Cha
Most can be found online on video sharing sites as well as patterns showing the steps and timing, though these can require some deciphering.
If you are not sure you meet these criteria and wish to skate as a guest or join as a member, please Contact us and we will be happy to advise. Application forms are available from Dance Club committee members. We do also ask that prospective members be aged 11 or over, though the committee does have discrection on this.
Membership of the both clubs runs from November to October each year, though you can join at any time and the membership is calcaulated pro rata for the remainder of the year.

Associate membership entitles a skater
to represent Oxford Ice Dance Club at open competitions and to take
part in club events, but does not include any ice time. Associate
members must therefore pay the weekly guest fee if they wish to skate on
club ice. Lessons are available on the session for full members only.
Benefits of Full Membership:
eligibility for private lessons on the club session (by individual arrangement with a coach)
10% discount at The Terrace (Oxford Ice Rink's cafe)
10% discount at Ice Therapy (sport massage and soft tissue therapy based at the ice rink)
eligibility to participate in club competitions
