UADC presents Ballroom 101: Waltz, Chacha, and Rumba (AP)
New to ballroom dance? Want to learn some moves for the Ball on Friday night? Taught by experts from UADC, there will be a Ballroom 101 class held during the day on Friday to get you prepped for this magical night! 

Founded in 1957, the University of Alberta Dance Club, one of the University's longest running clubs, is a not-for-profit organization set up by University students (now alumni) who loved ballroom dancing and spreading that love. Today, the club is the University's largest dance club, and club members enjoy weekly classes run by volunteer instructors who are privately trained by world champion dance professionals, as well as many social events held throughout the year that give members a chance to socialize, relax, have fun, and of course, dance! The club prides itself on offering great value at low cost. Nowhere else in the city offers so much for so little! Visit the UADC's website at for more information.
