About The Club
Welcome to the UBC Dance Club, the perfect place to begin or continue your adventure in ballroom dance! Expect no less than a year packed with fantastic high-spirited events, splendid soirees, and a spectacular annual UBC Gala Ball.
We provide a full year of lessons (16 weeks) in which you will learn International Style Ballroom and Latin dancing. International Standard dances are very smooth and carry you gracefully around the room. The Standard division includes the Waltz, Quickstep, Foxtrot, Tango, and Viennese Waltz. The Latin dances are very rhythmic and use a special type of hip action. The Latin division includes the Cha Cha, Rumba, Samba, Jive, and Paso Doble. All of these dances will be taught by some of BC’s most accomplished and able instructors. Our outstanding faculty includes Kyryl Dudchenko, Joel Marasigan, Zillion Wong, and Murray Schellenberg.
Monthly events and practices are free for club members. From Standard Technique to Cha Cha Variations or the Club’s own Gala 101 seminar, you will never run out of dancing experiences! What are you waiting for? Register with us today!
UBC Dance Club members get $10 off on their appointments for Physiotherapy, Active Therapy and Massage therapy. This alongside the 25 dollars subsidy from the UBC insurance is a steal of a deal to keep your bodies healthy and loose!
