Since 2016, Olympic Ballroom Dance LLC has been dedicated to bringing a positive and affordable dance experience to our local youth. We believe that this fun and character-enriching experience should be available and accessible to all!
Our mission is not only the instruction and performance of ballroom dance, but improving the confidence and social development of our participants. Our dancers experience amazing character growth while participating in classes, learning to work with others on teams, and conquering fears as they perform.
Our programs are growing as we reach more youth in our community!
OBD operates as a non-profit (even though it does not currently have this legal status due to a complicated application process). All profits are returned to the studio for the benefit of our students and programs.
OBD will be hosting this exciting event to help raise additional funds to achieve our goals for the future:
- Need-based scholarships for those who need financial assistance to participate in our programs
- More team opportunities, including possible performance tours
- A studio space!
