Dancing with the Stars: CMU Edition

Each Fall semester, we pair our advanced dancers with representatives from numerous student organizations to learn a routine in two weeks. At the end of the two weeks, couples perform in front of judges and audience members. The winning couple, as voted by judges and audience members, will take home the Mirror Ball trophy as well as half the proceeds, to be donated to the charity of the winning student org's choice.

Scotch Ball

We host the annual Scotch Ball, which is open to all CMU affilinates. It is an evening of class and elegance, with live jazz bands and hor d'oeuvres. Visit Scotch Ball for more information.

USA Dance Socials

USA Dance Pittsburgh holds monthly dances, two of which are held right here on CMU Campus, one in the second week of September, and one in the second week of March.

Monthly Social Dances

A social dance is once a month in place of lessons. These are open to everyone and are great times to practice dances you've learned, meet other club members, and have fun! Feel free to make music requests and ask experienced members for help or new steps. Look on our calendar for more information!


We go to about three competitions each semester, with some in Pittsburgh and some in the Midwest or East Coast. These are amazing experiences, especially ones like the Ohio Star Ball (one of the biggest competitions in the US, with a world-class professional competition). You dance a lot, watch awesome dancers, and get to hang out with the CMU Competition Team. :) If you're interested in watching or participating in these, check out our page on Competing.
