Ballroom Dance Club

With Valentine's Day just
around the cutner, some are look-
ing to find a new skill to impress
their dates and one club on cam-
pus might be ahle to help.
Founded in 1999, the Universi-
ty's Ballroom Dancing Club is an
organization fur members of the
University and Ann Arbor com-
munities to learn traditional and
moudernoballroom dance styles.
Every Sunday, members of
the club gather in the Michigan
Union or the Michigan League
to learn dentin ranging from
the more traditional Foxtrot, the
Viennese Waltz, the Swing. and
the Cha-Cha to more modern
dance styles like Sals, Meren-
gut, and the Hustle.
Unlike the University's Ball-
room Dance Team, the Ballroom
Dance Club doesn't participate
io competitions, but instead
focuses on creating a relaxed and

social atmosphere fur its dancers,
according to Alice Huang, presi-
dent of the club.
"The Ballroom Dance Club is
exactly what its name implies:
a club," Huang said. "Expect to
have fun and learn new things;
it's recreational, notcompetitive."
Dancers of different levels
participate in the club, which is
always open to new members,
Huang said.
"The levels range from abso-
lutely beginner to very expe-
rienced," Huang said. "The
Ballroom Dance Club welconmes
all dancers, whether they are
searching for a dance venue, fur
learning opportunities, or simply
for a good time with fellow danc-
The weekly dance sessions
begin with large group lessons
taught by experienced instruc-
tots and end with two hours of

open dance where dancers can
practice their new skills, accord-
ing to Wenting Gun, the club's
vice president.
"As a newcomer, one could
expect a welcoming environment
fur learning and developing all
aspects of Ballroom, Internation-
al Latin, and American Rhythm
dancing," Gun said.
People with little experi-
ence can also participate-in the
"Beginner's Blitz" which occurs
at the beginning of each semes-
ter. At these sessions a new
dancer can learn the basics fur
many different dances to be bet-
ter prepared for future sessions,
Huang said.
One time each semester, the
club hosts a party that includes
members from other colleges,
which allows them to showcase
new dance skills, Huang said.
