Broadway Dance Society
Welcome to Broadway Dance Society, the only dance society at Cardiff University to offer lessons in Tap, Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Street, 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 £15 per academic year (plus the Societies guild fee). Weekly lessons are then £2 for members per class. You do not have to be a member of Broadway to come along and take part in our classes, but the weekly lesson fee is £4 for non-members. Non-students are also welcome to join Broadway or just come along to lessons, they just need to contact the committee to get set up.
Our lessons work towards our annual showcase which will be on 22nd March 2020 at the Students Union, where we will put on a matinee and an evening performance. The theme of this years' show is 'Music That Changed The World'. 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’ alongside the annual varsity with Swansea University.
Following last year's amazing success, we will once again be holding auditions for our competition teams at the beginning of this year (Saturday 12th October, Y Plas, 10am-2pm). We will have teams at both Intermediate and Advanced levels competing in Ballet, Jazz and Tap alongside the other Cardiff University dance societies. We will be heading all over the country, as well as hosting our very own competition (February 2020), hoping that this year will be our most successful yet! Last year we placed in every dance at every competition so we are very excited to get back into it and see what this year holds for us.
On Sunday 6th October 2019 (6pm-10pm Y STIWDIO) we will be holding an Open Evening, containing a variety of Give it a Go sessions for each style of dance which will be offered at just £3 for the entire evening. This will be a good chance to discover new styles of dance and to meet the committee and teachers and decide which classes are best suited to you.
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 will be holding a Freshers Social on the 29th September (at the College Tavern, details on Facebook!) to give you a chance to meet some of the teachers and committee as well as enjoying a few drinks!
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!
