FAD (Dance Society)

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, and that’s exactly what we aim to bring to members. Our classes will have a blended approach this year between online and face-to-face, offering Zoom classes every Tuesday and Thursday and hosting face-to-face classes whenever possible. 

Commercial dance is a fun, sassy (and cheap!) way to keep fit whilst being surrounded by an amazing group of people. It's most easily described as the style 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, who perform on behalf of the society at competitions and Dance Varsity. 

This year, whilst competitions and performances are not confirmed, we plan to make the most out of the routines we learn and create music videos. Our committee is determined to make sure you get the most out of the year and we hope these videos will give everyone something to look forward to being a part of! 

Over the years we’ve gotten a reputation for hosting some hilarious, eccentric and Fadulous socials every other week ending with nights out in the SU, and we can only hope that this returns when it’s safe to do so, however it will not stop us having fun! We will be running social, non-alcoholic, and charity events online (and face-to-face where possible) and continue to work closely with other dance societies within CUSU.
