Welcome to the CMU Ballroom Dance Club! Our club is
both a social organization, with beginner lessons and social dance events,
and a dance school, teaching novices and veterans a large variety of Ballroom and Latin dances.
We welcome all CMU students and members of the Pittsburgh community.
Anyone can learn to dance - including you!
- Do I need a partner? Nope--we encourage people to rotate partners at lessons to learn faster.
- Do I need experience? No--our Beginner lessons are geared towards newcomers.
- What if I'm already awesome? Our Silver and Intermediate lessons cater to
competition-oriented dancers and dancers looking to learn more advanced
steps and technique.
- What if I want more? We go to competitions in Pittsburgh, the Midwest, and the Northeast.
We can help you arrange private lessons with student instructors or professional instructors. And we have extra events
during the year to learn dances like Salsa, Swing, and Hustle.
- Can I get more info? Sure, check out the details on our Lessons page
and our Calendar, and
email us if you have more questions.
