National Ballroom Dance Week Sept 18-27

September 18, 2020 - September 27, 2020

National Ballroom Dance Week Sept 18-27

Make sure to check what your town’s current COVID-19 guidelines are regarding group gatherings and physical distancing. The dance studios that are open must have rules/policies in place that are always subject to change. Inquire before attending.

Dancers, contact the chapter nearest you for details on events scheduled to celebrate NBDW™! See the “Find a Chapter” page for a list of Chapters by state. Click on chapter name for an option to email them directly or visit their website.

Right now you may be asking yourself, “Why should we do anything special for NBDW™?”

There are two reasons: first is to share with others what we enjoy so much –ballroom dancing; second, this is an occasion where we cannot only celebrate, but promote dancing in general and USA Dance in particular. It is a great opportunity to increase membership and participation in dancing in your community.

We encourage chapters who have never done anything special to recognize this week by trying just one new thing. It could be a raffle, free passes to future dances, or free admission for anyone who brings a first-time guest, to mention a few. Many chapters go “all out” to celebrate with a dance every night, often with each offering a different theme. Chapters hold dances in malls, community centers, and parks – they advertise or arrange to have feature articles written in the local paper about ballroom dancing. They offer free lessons, and do demonstrations in nursing homes, schools, festivals and other public venues.

Films like “Mad Hot Ballroom” and “Shall We Dance” were extremely popular. ABC broadcast of “Dancing With The Stars” has been a huge hit sparking lots of interest in learning to dance, particularly with the 18-49 age group. Start now, use the current media attention as a springboard for promoting ballroom dancing in your community.

Integrating dance films and TV shows into the week-long celebration is an interesting way to promote dancing in your area.

Here’s to celebration and happy dancing feet.
