About your Instructors

Queen's Dance Club (QDC)

RSVP on Facebook to QDC Free Trial Week!

Queen’s Dance Club (QDC) is the largest student-run recreational club in Canada open to dancers of all backgrounds and abilities. QDC provides over 700 students each year with the opportunity to take dance classes throughout their time at Queen’s University.

Getting involved in Queen’s Dance Club is a great way for students to escape from the stresses of University life and meet others with a similar passion for dance.

Our classes range from Beginner to Advanced, to accommodate all dancers. Dancers are encouraged to register for as many dance classes as they like.

To participate in a class, students must come to the sign-up table on the 2nd floor of the ARC. Please arrive with your student card or ARC membership. It will be first come, first serve and there are only 40 spots available in each class, so come early (at least 15 minutes) to secure your spot! QDC executive members will be there to answer any of your questions.

Each QDC class is one hour and fifteen minutes in length and is priced at $80 for the year (or $40 per semester). These prices cover the cost of recital costumes and classes for the entire school year. Official registration for QDC classes will occur on Friday, Sept. 22 & Saturday, Sept. 23.

Most QDC classes are choreography-based, which means that they perform in our Mid-Year and Final Recitals at the end of each school term. QDC also offers technique-focused classes that help dancers build and maintain a strong foundation in jazz and ballet. These technique classes do not perform in the recitals, as they are more focused on the dancers’ personal growth.

FLOW Dance Club

RSVP to FLOW’s Free Trial Week!

Flow began as just a small group of friends in 2006 with a shared passion for hip-hop dance, and the drive to develop a hip-hop community in Kingston. Today, our club involves over 150 students and we teach them a wide variety of hip-hop styles with music and dance inspirations from across Africa, Asia, and the Americas. We offer classes with unique choreography, taught so as to accommodate dancers of all levels and experiences. Mostly, we focus on personal growth of our students through our classes, our freestyle sessions, and preparation for the Mid-year and Final Flow Shows.

Auditions for FLOW’s Performance Crew are coming up on Sat. Sept. 23.

We encourage expression through dance in your own style, at your own pace, surrounded by people who love it and want to improve just as much as you do. Our culture is unique because joining our club is akin to joining our family. Looking back on our history, the presidents who led this club, and the dancers who stayed with this club–you are not just a dancer in Flow, but Flow becomes a part of you.
