Since SAIF rearranged their schedule updates are on their way.
Welcome to the very first Academic Games of Chalmers University. This year we aim to start a new tradition where students come together to compete in a variety of sports, and in the case of Chalmers Dance Society, couples dancing. The games are to be held on Gothenburg from September 22-24th, with the dancing taking place on the 24th. Couples dancing such as Waltz, Quickstep, Cha cha and Jive, which are all offered in the Academic games, have a rich history as a fun and exciting way of socializing.
With the simple phrase ”Would you like to dance?”, you could all join the fun! Still not ready to join the fun of dancing!? Then just come and hang out, listen to music, socialize and eat some BBQ!
