History and Background

Although dancing has embellished the events at Royal College through its past, no-one has thought of making it more organized until the year 2000, when it was first introduced as a club. The society was pioneered by Mrs Trishila disanayeke who provided her utmost strength for the club. However, in 2003 the Dancing Society was considered a failed society. It was revived once again with the new master in charge, Mr Sanath Abeykoon in year 2000. Under his guidance, a Ves mangalya was held for the first time in the school’s history.

After this era, the club disappears again until 2009, when it resurfaces with Ashan kathriarachchi as chairman of the club. Since then, the Dancing Club has worked inside the school with a committed master in charge.

Vision and Mission

The vision of the club is to conquer the world of entertainment with innovations and experiments of tradition and modern dancing, to provide entertainment and a great relief for the minds of people.

Their mission is to experiment in the world of dancing to find new methods and improving the students skills with practicing of traditional and western dancing styles.
