"Founded in 1957, the University of Alberta Dance Club is a not-for-profit organization set up by University students (now alumni) who loved ballroom dancing and spreading that love. The club has been around for 60 years, making it one of the University's longest running clubs. 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. 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."
