Weekly Dances

Hello Dancers and welcome to our 2018-19 Fall season! Our first dance takes place Friday, September 28th, and the season will continue through November 16th. Lessons start at 7:30 pm, and the social dance will begin at 8:30 pm. We have moved to Global Scholars Hall room 123 and all of our dances will be free of charge to both students and community members! We hope to see you there! 

A note: Sadly, we will not be offering our Intermediate 'Beyond Basics' Lessons this term as we were unable to secure a room near Global Scholars Hall room 123 that was not carpeted.  For those who would like to improve upon their basic steps in the weeks to come, we always offer our Beginner's Box during our dances where any of the officers would be more than happy to teach you a few new moves!

Save the date: November 16th is our Fall Formal

Important Announcements:

1. Hello dancers! Our first dance of Fall term 2018 will be a special social dance in partnership with our friends at USA Dance! There will not be a lesson, but admission is FREE for students! This dance takes place during National Ballroom Dance Week on September 28th, 2018. Join us at Gerlinger Hall, room 220 from 7:00 pm to 9:30pm for a fun night of dancing! As always, no partner or experience necessary! Grab your dancing shoes and come kick off another great year of dancing with all of us at OBDC! Regular lessons begin back in Global Scholars Hall, room 123, the following week on Friday, October 5th with a Bachata lesson! We look forward to seeing you! 

2. Hello dancers! We have big news that we would like to share with you. Firstly, we thank you for your continual support and for your time that you spend dancing with us. For this upcoming year, we will not be hosting our dance events in Gerlinger Hall, as we usually do. Due to financial limitations that the Club has been facing for a long time, we will be hosting in Global Scholars Hall’s Great Room (123). However, the Fall Formal will be held in Gerlinger Hall! Our events will still be Friday nights, starting at 7:30 pm with the lesson and social dancing at 8:30 pm. While the room is not as wonderful as the Gerlinger ballroom, it will be available to us as a club, ensuring that we are around for years to come. We will be trying our best to move back into Gerlinger in the Fall. Stay tuned to our Facebook page and our membership email for details as we finalize them. Thank you, from your Oregon Ballroom Dance Club team.
