USA Dance is a nationwide nonprofit organization of thousands of volunteers who love ballroom dancing. USA Dance members have many things in common, such as appreciation for the social and health benefits of dance as well as the excitement and romance that ballroom dancing brings into their lives.
At a grass roots level in communities, colleges and secondary schools all over the country, USA Dance volunteers provide opportunities for the public to engage in affordable social ballroom dancing and competitive DanceSport activities. Beginners are welcomed, helped to get started and then assisted in achieving their goals. The core goal of USA Dance is for everyone to enjoy a life filled with dance!
