U.S. National Dancesport Championships at BYU March 7-10

Brigham Young University will be the host of one of the largest amateur Dancesport events in the country during the U.S. National Dancesport Championships at the Marriott Center Wednesday through Saturday, March 7-10.

Ticket options include main floor “ringside” tables, public arena chair seating and student seating. For ticket prices and to purchase tickets, visit the Marriott Center Ticket Office, byutickets.com , (801) 422-BYU1.

The Dancesport competition is one of the largest in the country and will feature more than 30 different divisions. National amateur titles will be awarded in Latin, standard, smooth, rhythm, cabaret and formation in all age categories. 

“This is real reality TV,” said ballroom dance faculty member Claudia Hill. “People can come and watch some great dancing, pick their favorite couple and see if they can place them like the judges would.”

The Dancesport Championships are sponsored by BYU’s Ballroom Dance Program, which had its roots in 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.

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