Welcome! Our mission is to improve the quality and the quantity of ballroom dancing in the United States particularily in the Great Lakes Bay area of Michigan.
Welcome to the home page of the USA Dance Mid-Michigan Chapter #2043 website. For those of you who are unfamiliar with USA Dance, we are a non-profit national organization that encourages self-expression through ballroom dancing, socially as well as competitively. We believe that our focus on ballroom dancing contributes to the mental and physical aspects of well-being, in short, it's good for your body, heart, mind and spirit!
USA DANCE chapters create dance opportunities for local citizens by organizing affordable social dances, dance lessons and workshops. Chapter members often present dance education and live demonstrations in nursing homes, retirement homes, hospitals, schools, shopping malls, and other public places, while striving to educate the public regarding the health and social benefits of ballroom dancing. The goal of each chapter is to serve the national mission on a grassroots level, as a leader and a motivation for ballroom dance activities in the community, colleges and schools.
The newly elected board for 2015-16 was forced to temporarily suspend monthly dances until further notice. A few additional volunteers are needed to bring our dances back. If you can volunteer as little as an hour of your time, contact Lorrie Ito at lorrieito @ gmail.com or (989) 488-7270 or Liane Rittmaier at lsteinbacher8299 @ charter.net or (989) 835-8299.
