Olympic Ballroom Dance is currently recruiting for new 2018 season team members! After taking a break to do some program restructure, we are ready to pursue a new show season in 2018–and we need dancers!! Read more about our team below, and if you are interested in coming to auditions (Fri, Nov 17, 2017) please click HERE to register!

 

Our formation team is for those who are interested in an engaging performance opportunity. We are looking for teens that can be dedicated to achieving a high level of success as a team, and have the ambition to consistently improve. Dancers with all levels of experience, including beginners, are welcome to audition! We will learn exciting routines, tricks, and work hard together to synchronize formations. This team will have several local performance opportunities, and travel to the Portland Open DanceSport Competition in May! Rehearsals are held twice a week, for 1.5 hours each. Team dancers are also encouraged to enroll in a class, but not required.

Beginning Latin & Ballroom (Bronze Level 1): Tuesdays, 6:20-7:20 pm

For those who are just beginning, to those who have been training for less than one year. This class will learn steps and technique from select International Latin and Ballroom styles, such as Cha Cha, Samba, Waltz, and Quickstep. A fun, no-stress introduction to the many different varieties of ballroom dancing, as you learn to dance with a partner and move around the floor! This class will finish the session with some performance experience as we showcase some of our class routines at the Lacey Spring Fun Fair on May 19, 2018.

Did you know that ballroom dance is also a competitive sport? The routines learned in this class can be used to compete at local DanceSport competitions! In class, we will learn about competing and how to get started–there are entry categories for beginners!
