Ballroom Dance

From The Wiki Fire

Ballroom is pretty much the coolest club on campus. Students go there to learn how to do the waltz, foxtrot, rhumba, cha-cha, tango, samba, swing, salsa, and other amazing dances. Sometimes they go to competitions too. It is an awesome club and you should go. They meet from 8-9:30 PM every Thursday in the Aux Gym, and more advanced dancers practice on Sunday nights too.


[edit] Leadership

The original instructor (and faculty advisor) was Don Blaheta, although sometimes team captain Lauren Assaf took over to teach a salsa lesson or two. Since Don's departure at the end of the '09-'10 school year, teaching duties have been ably handled by club officers.
