Tickets are available at $11 for general admission ($20 for both days), $13 for reserved seating ($24 for both days) or $17 for table seating ($32 for both days). BYU student tickets are $8 with a valid student ID. The tickets can be purchased at the Wilkinson Center Information Desk.

The competition will feature dancers in the preteen, junior, youth and adult categories of competition. 

The BYU DanceSport Championships are sponsored by BYU’s Ballroom Dance Program, which sprang from the first social dance class held at the university in 1953. Since then, the program has rapidly progressed and is considered the most comprehensive study of ballroom dancing in a university setting in the world.

With seven studios and more than 100 classes taught yearly, the program offers  instruction and training from beginning to advanced and competitive levels in international style Latin, standard ballroom and American social dance. More than 5,000 students each year participate in the Ballroom Dance Program, taking part in group classes, dance labs and practice sessions. Students and nonstudents alike compete in the DanceSport Championships, held twice a year.

For more information, contact Claudia Hill at (801) 422-1687 or claudiabeckhill@gmail.com or call the Ballroom Dance Office at (801) 422-4623.
