Broadway Dance Society
Welcome to Broadway Dance Society, the only dance society at Cardiff University to offer lessons in Tap, Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Street, Musical Theatre, Hard and Soft Shoe Irish at levels ranging from Beginners to Advanced. We cater for everyone at Broadway!
Our Beginners classes are structured for people who have little to no dance experience, Improvers classes offer a level of dance for those who may be picking up again after a break from dance lessons, Intermediate classes are for those who feel they aren't quite at the technique level of an advanced class but still love the performance aspect, while Advanced classes are designed for people who have a lot of dance experience.
Membership of Broadway Dance is £18 per academic year **non-refundable** (plus the Societies guild fee). Weekly lessons are then £2 for members per class. Our weekly class timetable will be posted on our Facebook group page. The first two weeks of classes are pay-as-you-go, £4 for non-members, and £2 for members per class, these can be purchased on our SU webpage after the Fresher's Fair. Following these 1st two weeks, the classes will require a semester fee of £18 per type of class for the whole semester. These block class semester fees can be purchased on our SU webpage (release date can be found on our facebook page). Non-students are also welcome to join Broadway or just come along to lessons, they just need to contact the Treasurer or President to complete an associate membership form.
Our lessons work towards our annual showcase which will be in March 2024, where we will put on a matinee and an evening performance. We will also be offering chances to perform on several other occasions throughout the year in University events such as 'Winter Showcase', ‘Go Global’ and ‘Fringe Festival’,
Following last year's amazing success, we will once again be holding auditions for our competition teams at the beginning of this year. We will have teams at both Intermediate and Advanced levels competing in Ballet, Jazz and Tap, and Wildcard alongside the other Cardiff University dance societies. This year we also are introducing a new Street team. We will be heading all over the country, as well as hosting our very own competition (February 2024), hoping that this year will be our most successful yet! Last year we placed highly at every competition so we are very excited to get back into it and see what this year holds for us.
On the 8th of October we will be holding a GIAG so new members can meet the committee and try our different styles of dance. This will be a good chance to discover new styles of dance; meet a few of the teachers and decide which classes are best suited to you. Please book your ticket in advanced.
As well as coming along to lessons, Broadway is a brilliant social opportunity, where you can meet like-minded students. We hold regular Broadway socials, which vary in nature from themed nights out to dance workshops, theatre trips and DVD nights! Come along to our first social of the year details coming very soon! We also have several theatre trips in the pipeline as well as various meals and other socials so watch this space! If you are a new member or thinking of joining the society, we are preparing for our first wednesday SU night social currently coming up very soon, which will allow you to get to know everyone and quickly feel like part of the Broadway family!
We look forward to welcoming you into our society and meeting you very soon! Any questions, please feel free to contact one of the committee! Make sure you check out our Events page for photos from previous socials and performances!
