Ballroom Dance

From The Wiki Fire
Jump to navigation Jump to search

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.


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.
