Welcome! Our mission is to improve the quality and the quantity of ballroom dancing in the United States.
Welcome to the Showcase page of Ocala Chapter #6027 of USA Dance. For those of you who are unfamiliar with USA Dance, we are a non-profit national organization that encourages self-expression through ballroom dancing, socially as well as competitively. We believe that our focus on ballroom dancing contributes to the mental and physical aspects of well-being, in short, it's good for your body, heart, mind and spirit!
Our Ocala Chapter serves Ocala, Gainesville, Hawthorne, Citra, Anthony, Belleview, The Villages, Marion, Lake & Alachua Counties and surrounding areas. Anyone interested in ballroom and social dancing, including singles, couples, and beginners of all ages, are very welcome at all of our dances and special events. USA Dance chapters create dance opportunities for local citizens by organizing affordable social dances, dance lessons and workshops.
Chapter members often present dance education and live demonstrations in nursing homes, retirement homes, hospitals, schools, shopping malls, and other public places, while striving to educate the public regarding the health and social benefits of ballroom dancing. The goal of each chapter is to serve the national mission on a grassroots level, as a leader and a motivation for ballroom dance activities in the community, colleges and schools.
