CUTAZZ Dance Society was established in 2003 as Cambridge University Tap and Jazz Society. Originally only running three classes- advanced and beginners’ tap and jazz- the society rapidly expanded into other styles and now holds thirteen classes per week in tap, jazz, street, lyrical, body conditioning and dance aerobics.

The first show was a one night only joint production with the ballet society taking place in the Fitz auditorium. The show was a massive success and completely sold out.  From there the society went from strength to strength, introducing intermediate tap, and intermediate and beginners jazz.  The second production included a matinee performance as well as the evening show, and CUTAZZ began to diversify its activities, appearing at the Grafton Centre for Children in Need, and performing at the Selwyn Snow Ball.

This increase in responsibility soon required more committee members, so to the original positions of President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary, was expanded to today's current array of positions.

The annual show of 2008 was 'Staged', which ran at the ADC.  The seven shows since have been at the Mumford Theatre, Anglia Ruskin University. 

The society is entirely student-run, with an enthusiastic committee dedicated to ensuring that everything is running smoothly!  Classes are taken by a mixture of professional and student teachers and are held mostly in rooms within the colleges of the university.
