Important USA Dance programs include the support and establishment of chapters throughout the country, financial and training support of our country's top athletes, organization and regulation of DanceSport competitions at the regional and national levels, encouragement of Special Olympics DanceSport and a K-12 after-school dance programs, support of seniors as recreational dancers and as athletes, fostering of a healthy, productive communications exchange via the general media and the USA Dance website, social media sites and the official publication American Dancer.
Essentially, USA Dance has the overall mission to increase the quality and quantity of ballroom dancing in America.
We hold monthly dances--the second Friday of each month. Typically, a dance consists of a one hour lesson beginning at 7:00pm and 2-1/2 hours of social ballroom dance afterwards. Some emphasis is placed on the evening's lesson and there may be a dance mixer of some sort. Occasionally we will offer you a dance demonstration.
The Chapter will also provide public demonstrations at the local malls, retirement and nursing homes and other public places striving to educate and promote ballroom dancing to the public in the area. We strive to be the leader and focal point for ballroom dance activities in the community.
