Ballroom Dance

Interested in learning or improving your ballroom dance skills? Come join us on the UNC Ballroom Dance Club! Our team travels throughout the East Coast to compete at various collegiate and USA DanceSport Competitions. We compete in International Latin (Cha Cha, Rumba, Samba, and Jive) and Standard (Waltz, Tango, Quickstep, Foxtrot), with dancers representing the team at the newcomer level through Championship. All skills and abilities are welcome, so competitions aren’t a requirement. We also dance for fun (Hustle, Salsa, and Bachata) at various social events. Lessons are free, so come try it out at any time to see if you want to join the team.
