No Experience Necessary!
BU Ballroom Dance Club and Team holds weekly lessons in the GSU Alley (basement next to BU Central) on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Professional coaches instruct members in all four styles of ballroom dance (International Standard, International Latin, American Rhythm, and American Smooth) at the Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced levels.
The club also offers competition practice Fridays and lesson reviews/open practice time on Saturdays in Fitrec, downstairs behind the rock climbing wall.

There are three levels of coached lessons available through the club: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. If you are unsure which lesson you should attend feel free to speak with any of the eboard or advanced club members and they will be more than happy to help you figure out what lesson best suits your needs.
Beginner lessons are intended for the newcomer dancer - someone who is new to ballroom dancing. They are a great place to learn the steps and basic technique for all of the dances.
Intermediate lessons are for the bronze dancer - someone who has been dancing for a year or less. You should have atleast one semester of experience dancing and should know a majority of the syllabus steps at the newcomer level. These classes focus on learning the bronze level steps and adding more advanced technique to your dancing.
Advanced lessons are for silver dancers.You should have approximately a year of experience dancing and should know a majority of the syllabus steps at the bronze level. These classes focus on learning the silver level steps and adding more advanced technique to your dancing.
In addition to the weekly coached lessons there are also other opportunities for improving your dancing. As a team, we go to near by social dances and dancing clubs around Boston. There are also many opportunities to perform, whether it be in our fall showcase Montage!, or during Dancing with the Professors.
