Chinese Classical Dance, Performing Arts and Wellb


Welcome to the Chinese Classical Dance, Performing Arts & Wellbeing Society (CDPAWS for short). We are interested in you and your wellbeing which you can nurture through the elegant art of Chinese Dance.  If you have a passion for dance OR you have never danced before then think about Chinese Dance. It is elegant, yet demanding; energising yet approachable and most of all it is exciting because you can go as far as you want. You could join in just to promote your fitness and wellbeing OR you could become serious and take part in classes (beginner through to master levels) and even become a performer for one of our dance shows if you so wish. The choice is yours. We also offer fitness classes with a focus on demanding exercises (based on a dancer's regime), however if you like to take things more serenely you can attend and go at your own pace.  We encourage you to take part in the activities we offer in an exciting and relaxed environment. All of our classes, performances, fitness classes and university activities are led by a professionally trained dance teacher who graduated from the world famous Beijing Academy of Dance and has over 20 years of experience. To keep up-to-date with our activities including shows, classes, performances and social events, then e-mail us or check out our social media pages. Most of all, we welcome you to to join our society.

For further information, please contact our president, Natalie, who will be more than happy to help. Just pop her an email at

Looking forward to hearing from you!



All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.

A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students' Union.

It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
