Course: Ballroom Dancing at the USC

Ballroom dancing is a form of partner dancing where two individuals move synchronously to music. It encompasses various dance styles and requires a blend of technique, balance, rhythm, and expression. This dance brings people together and is also highly beneficial for improving flexibility, agility, posture, and overall fitness.

The USC offers ballroom dance courses at different levels, welcoming dancers of all abilities! Each level focuses on different dance styles:

Beginners: English waltz, Tango, Quickstep, Cha-cha-cha, Rumba, and Jive
Intermediate: + Viennese waltz, and Samba
Advanced: + Slow foxtrot, and Paso Doble

Please note: if you have missed more than 2 classes during the course, you will not be able to participate in the subsequent classes. This is due to falling behind in terms of technique compared to the other participants.

More about the levels

Have you danced before? Unsure of your level? Interested in progressing after your beginners' course?

Don't hesitate to ask questions to the instructors. They would be happy to provide advice and information about the endless possibilities within ballroom dancing! Once you've completed two blocks, you can choose to move on to the next level. Discuss this with your instructor at the end of your second block.

To progress from beginners to advanced courses, you must have completed courses A and B. The best time to move up to the second group is in January or September, while September is ideal for advancing to the third group. Interested in joining at a different time? This can only be done in consultation with the instructors. Course A is offered in Blocks 1 and 3. Course B in Blocks 2 and 4. Block 5 is an intensive course. For more information about the blocks, refer to the course overview.
