Oz Ball Preview

Looking to escape the Bubble? Take a trip to Emerald City on February 27th with Dance Soc’s Oz Ball! Beginning at 8:30pm at Younger Hall, guests can take a break from the lull of student life with the Wizard of Oz themed ball, whose low ticket price of ₤15 makes it easily one of the best values in St Andrews, and includes discounted entry (₤1) to The Vic for the After Oz Party.


Any event hosted by DanceSoc is guaranteed to have excellent entertainment and Oz Ball is no exception. The night will, of course, include performances by student dance groups including ShimmySoc, The Blue Angels, and the Ballroom & Latin Dance Society. The variety of genres will provide a fantastic mix to capture guests’ attention and maintain their excitement. Musical acts for the night will begin with The Big Band, and will continue with DJ SAUNIT– a St Andrews favourite.

DanceSoc has chosen to reserve some of the surprises they have planned to enthrall the guests of this Emerald City takeover, but they have promised a bar filled with a choice of wicked cocktails to suit the night’s theme at low student prices. The ticket price includes a complimentary glass of punch upon arrival and free ice cream from Jannettas. Students are asked to bring valid ID (passport or driving license).

This is DanceSoc’s fourth time planning and executing a fantastic yearly ball and it is clear that they intend on continuing their tradition of a fun and inexpensive night out. Tickets are being sold outside the Vic on February 18th from 1-4pm; proceeds will go towards Families First St Andrews. The charitable cause, low ticket price, entertainment that by far surpasses that of any standard night out, and the treats that DanceSoc has in store for guests make this ball not one to be missed.
