Carolina Ballroom is a student organization at USC. We offer classes for both beginners and advanced dancers taught by a professional coach. In addition to travelling to several dance competitions at other universities in the region, we hold our own competition, the Gamecock Invitational, each November. Be on the lookout for more information!
We teach primarily International style ballroom dance, including Rumba, Cha-cha, Samba, Jive, Quickstep, Waltz, Foxtrot, and Tango. We also teach American East Coast Swing and Shag. Click here to find out more information about each of the dances.
In addition to the Gamecock Invitational, we hold several fun social dances each year. They will typically be at Vista Ballroom, a local dance studio on Lady St. This year we hope to collaborate with the Latin Dance Club and SALA to throw joint dances.
Columbia has several dance venues that hold weekly or monthly dances. We take trips to these as a club as much as possible so that we can practice the steps we’ve learned on a real dance floor. Plus, you get to see (or even dance with) some truly great dancers in the area.
