Welcome to UConn Ballroom! Are you looking to learn some slick dance moves to impress your friends, significant other, or maybe just wanting something fun to do on Thursday nights?
Our Club is a social experience which meets Thursday nights in the Storrs Congregational Church from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. No set partner is necessary as we rotate in lessons to dance with all kinds of people! Between each 45-minute lesson, there are 15 minutes where all levels come together and dance what they learned in the lesson. For club, we teach the American styles of dances which include:
Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot, Cha Cha, Rumba, and Swing.
As you get more comfortable dancing, you can also have the opportunity to learn Mambo, Bolero, and Viennese Waltz.
Our Team is open to those interested in competing or want to learn a wider variety of dances. The Team lesson meets after club time from 9:00pm to 10:00pm. We go to several competitions in the New England area to compete and cheer on our fellow dancers. There are no try-outs to join and while we encourage you to compete, there is no obligation to do so! For Team, we teach the International styles of dance which include:
Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot, Viennese Waltz, Quickstep, Cha Cha, Rumba, Jive, Samba, and Paso Doble
