Competition

St Andrews Dance Club is home to the Blue Angels, our competitive dance team, and Highland Fusion, our Highland dancing demonstration team. 

Blue Angels

The Blue Angels compete in ballet, contemporary and jazz at both intermediate and advanced levels, as well as in hip-hop and tap.

Each year the team travels to a variety of competitions across the UK, and hosts the St Andrews Dance Competition, which was held for the first time in 2019.


The Blue Angels also produce annual winter and spring showcases, where they perform their competition pieces. The events also give members the opportunity to choreograph smaller group pieces, duets and solos.

The Blue Angels have performed at a variety of events, including Glitterball, Women in the Arts and DONT WALK.

Auditions for the team take place at the beginning of Semester 1 and are split by style. Throughout the year, dancers train weekly as a whole team, in addition to team training for each style and level occurring multiple times a week.

Highland Fusion

Highland Fusion take traditional highland dancing steps and incorporate them into modern choreography.

The group performs at several events throughout the year, including the St Andrews Day celebration, and the team’s own annual showcase, A Touch of Tartan.

The team trains three times a week and also attend the club’s Advanced Highland class in order to finesse their technique further.

There is no audition to join the team so anyone with a high level of Highland experience is welcome to come along to training.
