Upcoming Events

As part of our mission to spread the love of ballroom dancing to the University of Minnesota campus and the greater community, we have many events to raise awareness. Since we are a University of Minnesota Sport Club, we depend on fundraising to keep our dues low and to put on awesome events for our members. If you are interested in helping out at our events or have fundraising opportunities for us, please e-mail bdc@umn.edu

Volunteering

With the beginning of the semester just around the corner, we're excited to get back to dancing with you! Before lessons start, however, we have some events that we'd appreciate your help with. If you can make it for even just an hour we would love your help! These events are meant to demonstrate that great music and fun people are what BDC is all about!
 
If you'd like to volunteer for any of these activities or events, please email us at bdc@umn.edu. We would love your help with any of these events!
 
Explore U- Saturday September 9th, 1:30-4:30pm, Mariucci Arena
We are looking for people interested in helping at a contact table and handing out flyers to the freshman class. All 5,500 of them walk around looking at all the student groups, so we would love upbeat and happy people to talk to freshmen and tell them why they should come to ballroom.

Fall into Dance- Sunday September 10th, Coffman Great Hall
This is easily our biggest marketing event of the year, so we'd really appreciate it if we can get some volunteers to help make sure it runs smoothly! Even if you don't have time to volunteer, we'd still love it if people would try to attend this event, as it helps to show potential members how much fun we have at club.

Again, if you're willing to help us out we'd really appreciate it! BDC runs off of volunteer talent and time, so we're always looking for new recruits! If you have any questions, please feel free to let us know!
 
 

Ballroom Blast

Minnesota Ballroom Blast is low-stress, feedback-based, and designed to:
  • Provide social dancers and competitors alike with meaningful feedback from professionals they might not otherwise have access to
  • Introduce beginners to the general format of a competition in a low-chaos environment
  • Provide a preparatory event for those looking to compete
  • Allow couples to experiment with new choreography and costuming

All day, dancers perform ballroom and latin dances in the format of a dance competition and receive feedback from experienced ballroom professionals.
