National Chapter of the Year:
Our Carolina Heartland Chapter of USA Dance was named 2005 - 2006 National Chapter of the Year! This great honor was announced recently at the 2006 USA Dancesport competition held in California.

The award is the result of hard work and efforts of many club members, each doing what they can to promote Ballroom dance in the Burlington, Greensboro, High Point area of NC.
We should all be proud.

The outreach committee of Carolina Heartland has been active in promoting Ballroom Dance in the community.
In May, dancers from our chapter of USA Dance demonstrated the fun we have by dancing at the Kernersville Folly as one of the community participants.

We had a great turn-out of members. Dancing were Joe & Eileen Leggio, Steve & Sherri Raeford, Lynda Williams & Al Kamperman, Dave Idol, DonnaGuinard & Peter Kauber, Lynette & Wes Smitherman, Linda & Bob Perry, Linda & Larry Jackson, and Charlie Hafer.

We are always looking for new "Outreach Opportunities". We would love to demonstrate ballroom dance to groups that might be interested in joining us in dance.

We nearly did not have any music. The PA being used by the event organizers had blown a fuse on the outlet on the side of the store they we using. Fortunately, my car was parked close by and it had an AC outlet in the back seat (designed for portable TV, or a DVD player to keep kids occupied on a trip) It barely had enough capacity as long as we did not turn the volume up too high on the PA.

2015 Fall Showcase:

National Ballroom Dance Week Showcase and Dance a Big Success!

Those who were present at the Greensboro Shrine Club on Sept. 27 enjoyed another great Showcase and Dance, our 11th Annual fall showcase. It was well-attended, with 119 paid attendance, including many people who had never attended a ballroom dance event. Those in attendance saw 14 great dance performances, featuring many different dance styles.

The dance performances were by Paul and Ling Sun, Tim Saunders and Virita Harper, Don and Carole Baker (2 dances), Jerry and Jo Ann Snyder, Rockie and Mary Lou Troxler (2 dances), Billy Dillon and Allison Bailey (2 dances), Carlie and Jan Coats (2 dances), Mel and Victoria Paterline, and Burt and Flo Jackson. Terry and Melanie Whittington and Paul Kindley and Marty Bergman had prepared and practiced routines, but were not able to perform due to other commitments.

As usual, it took a large number of volunteers to plan, produce, and execute the showcase. Because of all those gracious enough to volunteer, rental of the Shrine ballroom is by far the largest production expense. Our sincere appreciation goes out to all of the volunteers, most of who are listed below.

Learn to Dance:
Most beginners at ballroom dance start by taking lessons from a professional instructor. Experienced dancers take lessons to learn new steps. Each of the USA Dance, Carolina Heartland Chapter dances starts with a lesson by a professional local instructor. That is one place to learn.
