Info!

The U of S Ballroom Dancing Club executive is currently reviewing and discussing all options for how and when to resume classes.  We will send email to all members when we have a plan. Please stay up to date with us over the summer on our Facebook page.

Specialty Workshops


Open to all members of the club only.

Specialty workshops offer members an opportunity to learn patterns and dances that are not in the clubs curriculum for the low price of $5 per session. The specialty workshops occur 2 to 4 times per year and are taught by our volunteer instructors. The workshops typically occur at Trinity Orthodox Hall on 20th street west and are a 1 day event. They are also normally on the same day as a monthly dance so you can practice all the new moves you learned that day - the playlist has a few extra songs of that dance for practice.

The specialty workshops have three different levels of classes and starts with level one. Level one starts off with the basic and a few simple patterns off of the basic. Level one is an ideal starting place for someone who is not familiar with the dance or has very little practice in it. If level one went well members can choose to stay for level two which builds off of the patterns taught in level one and introduces a bit more complex patterns. Members can also just drop into level two if they are comfortable with the basic patterns of the dance being taught. Yet again members can choose to continue on with level three after the first two levels. Level three will continue to build on what was taught in the previous two levels and adds longer strings of patterns. Members can choose to drop into level three if they are quite familiar and comfortable with the dance being taught.

Not sure what level is right for you? We always recommend coming out to all three as you never know what you will learn! If that is not possible consider the following, how much experience do you have with the dance? How comfortable are you with the dance? Or you could always ask your instructor!

Not sure if you should stick around for higher levels? You can always ask the instructors teaching the workshop. If they are busy the executive or other instructors in attendance would be able to help you decide!
