2018 At a Glance
The Ballroom Dance Center invites you to another magical year of dancing! In addition to the lessons we know you will enjoy, you may also choose to participate in a wide array of dances, festive events, shows and competitions held at the studio.
Offered annually, our showcases are full-length, original theatrical productions. All levels of dancers, as well as all ages, are welcome to be a part as we work together to produce the best show possible! Not only do we have fun and work hard during the entire process, the shows also helps build confidence and showmanship. Another bonus is the great camaraderie that develops among the cast as we go from music selection, to choreography, to lessons, to rehearsals, to the actual show.
The following Events schedule shows you many of the fun activities The Ballroom Dance Center offers during the year. Event updates are also available on our Calendar, Facebook, in the Studio and via E-mail!
