Who Are We?

The ND Ballroom and Latin Dance Club offers dancing opportunities for every level of dance ability. We have everything from lessons for beginners who have never danced before and social lessons for those who want to learn a few dance steps, meet other dancers, and have some fun, to advanced technique-based lessons for those who want to learn the dances more in-depth. Throughout the year we also take part in collegiate dancesport competitions, and encourage anyone who is interested in dancing competitively to join us. Whatever your interests are, we are sure to have something you will enjoy!

  • Social Lessons: Wednesday from 9:00–10:30pm in Rolf's AR 2.
