Set up in October 2008, Dance UL teaches a range of classes in Ballet, Hip Hop, Irish Dance, Jazz, Contemporary, and Zumba. Dance UL has also hosted workshops by guest choreographers to include different styles such as Swing Dance, Gypsy Dance, Urban Choreography, Heels, Dancehall, and more. The society's aim is to cultivate a fun and supportive environment where students are enabled to learn, practice, and perform a variety of different styles of dance. Dance UL also offers competitive opportunities in the form of Intervarsity Hip Hop, Jazz, Irish Dance, Contemporary and Mixed teams, which compete every year at the All Ireland Intervarsity Dance Competition. Dance UL has placed in at least one category at Intervarsities almost every year since first competing in 2009: 2009: First place in the Mixed category 2010: Three first place and one third place awards (out of four categories) 2012: First place in Jazz and second place in Hip Hop 2013: Second place in Jazz and third place in both Hip Hop and Irish Dance 2014: First place in both Hip Hop and Irish Dance 2015 (Hosted by UL): First place Hip Hop and Contemporary and third place in Irish Dance 2016: Third place in Contemporary Dance UL has also been granted other awards at the annual Clubs and Societies Ball, including "Best New Club" in 2009, "Best Event" for hosting Intervarsities in 2015, and "Best Fresher" in 2017.
