No Partner? No Experience? No Problem. People dancing

The UConn Ballroom Dance Club and Team is a student-run organization at the University of Connecticut. Our goal is to promote the experience of ballroom dance for all interested persons. The Club meets Monday nights in the Student Union Ballroom from 7-9pm for beginner and intermediate group classes. In our club we teach the core six American ballroom dances: The Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot, Swing, Cha-Cha and Rumba. The team learns all nineteen competitive ballroom dances, in both the American and International styles.

The club is instructed by Mick Malek, with our more advanced team members available to help out. Our team is coached by Mick Malek and Sara Schilling. We may also bring in guest coaching from time to time.
