Dance Club Times

Dance Club is from 7.30pm to 8.30pm on Tuesdays.

Oxford Ice Dance Club Membership

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):

  • Novice Foxtrot
  • Rhythm Blues
  • Dutch Waltz
  • Canasta Tango
  • Golden Skaters Waltz
  • Canadian Cha Cha
  • Riverside Rhumba
  • Festival Quickstep
  • 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
