Ballroom Dance Club meets in the University Recreation and Wellness Center, located in the center of campus, and shown in the map below. Lessons are in Multipurpose Rooms 1 and 2, which are just up the stairs on the second floor.
During lessons, we teach waltz, tango, foxtrot, Viennese waltz, quickstep, cha cha, rumba, samba, triple swing, and hustle. Some of the styles are demonstrated by our competition team members in the video below.
