What do we do?
Bournemouth University & Arts Univerity KPOP Society is an inclusive and friendly community for people who share an interest in Korean Pop Music (KPOP/K-POP), performance, and culture. We are a student-run society, founded in 2017.
We meet every Monday on Bournemouth University's Talbot campus, partaking in a variety of activities. Regular sessions often include karaoke, games nights, concert screenings, movie nights, random dance plays (RDP) and much, much more. We also offter weekly dance classes where you will have the chance to learn a variety of K-Pop choreography from one of our fantastic dance team (day to be confirmed)! These classes are open to all abilities; whether you have professional dance experience or simply just want to have some fun, you are welcome regardless!
For those who would like to be involved in a more professional dance environment, we also compete in K-Pop University Nationals as well as friendly Showcases! Make sure to keep an eye out on our Instagram for information regarding auditions and announcements.
Our general membership fee is £8 (for the whole year), which allows entry to all society socials and novice dance classes. Please note that some optional sessions (field trips, excursions etc.) may be subject to an additional fee.
