The University of Alberta Dance Club hosts several events and socials throughout the year. Some socials offer a dinner and dance. Others offer pizza and dance. Who can refuse food and dance? We want to encourage people to mingle and show off their moves. Watch those that are in higher levels or just dress up and have fun. We want YOU to experience the fun and joy of dance. Check out some of our upcoming events throughout this year! If you have any questions, please contact us at or through facebook (link at the bottom of the page).
