Freestyle also hosts a number of socials each term.
Our socials are a great way to get to know your fellow dancers and committee members,
and if you are a Fresher, joining our society and coming on our socials is an amazing way to meet a diverse range of people
and trust us, you will make the best friends you’ve ever had.
We highly recommend you come for ‘a night on the tiles’ with us!
