FAD (Dance Society)

FAD is a dance society within Cardiff Student’s Union, offering commercial style classes every week at Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels!! FAD stands for fitness and dance so that’s exactly what we aim to bring to members. Our classes will be back in person this year! We will, of course, be keeping an eye on restrictions and will be following the guidlines as they are updated!

Our commercial dance classes are a fun, sassy (and cheap!) way to keep fit whilst being surrounded by an amazing group of people. The style is most easily described as the one often seen in modern/pop music videos: think Beyonce, Britney, Ciara, Little Mix etc. We never take ourselves too seriously and welcome everyone to join, all classes are taught by committee members who are students here at Cardiff university. 

If you’re a keen dancer, we also provide the opportunity to audition for Troupe, our competition team!!! They perform on behalf of the society at competitions across the UK and at Dance Varsity. 

This year, whilst competitions and performances are not confirmed yet, we are hoping they will be! However we will still make the most out of the routines we learn and create mini videos at the end! Our committee are determined to make sure you get the most out of this year and we hope to give everyone something to look forward to being a part of! 

Over the years we’ve gotten a reputation for hosting some hilarious, lively and Fadulous socials every other week ending with nights out in the SU! We are extremely happy for SU Wednesdays to be back for us to venture to after our brilliant socials!

We will also be running non-alcoholic socials and charity events (some still online!) and continue to work closely with other dance societies within CUSU.  


We were at the Freshers Fair at the start of the year! If you couldn't make it, here is a little presentation to know a bit more about us!
