Swirling in circles, waltzing around, and having fun – ballroom dance club is open for the school year! Anyone is welcome; whether they’ve been dancing since they were four or have never tried it, the ballroom club is open to everyone.
Ballroom Dance Club meets once a week. They are willing to teach newcomers how to dance, and the Ballroom Dance Company is often in attendance to help individuals, and sometimes they teach the whole group a new ballroom dance. There is no fee for Ballroom Dance Club, and they meet every Thursday in the top of the Noyes Building from seven to nine pm.
“Once a month we do a dance slam,” club president Chelsea Tew says. “That way people get to dress up a little more and bring treats.” A lot of people usually go to these monthly events just to hang out and have fun. Anyone is invited, and the club tries to vary the music and not listen to straight classical all the time.
The Ballroom Dance Club also did a service project recently. They went to the Community Garden where they helped host an event. They were highlighting the garden harvest and demonstrating some dancing.
“I really enjoy the opportunity to get to know people in a non-stressful environment,” Tew continues. “It’s just somewhere you can go and have fun. No one is critiquing you on your dancing or anything, you just get to go meet new people and have fun.”
