USA DANCE ##6047-Martin-St.Lucie Chapter (Founded Dec. 1996)
The overall mission of USA Dance, Martin-St. Lucie Chapter is to divulge and disseminate the art and sport of ballroom dancing within our area.
We encourage and support exhibition dancing by chapter member volunteers for special events in our community as part of our outreach to the public, schools, Senior living facilities, and Special Olympics and are actively and monetarily supporting ballroom dance for young ballroom dance competitors.
Our chapter's membership of about 75, is made up of folks of all ages, backgrounds, and ethnicities. We are all there to have a good time dancing and to improve our skills in a wholesome, non-smoking environment. We often have a dance lesson or showcase during the dance which is a mix of music by a DJ or a live band on special occasions. Dance hosts are available for the ladies. We love to have beginners and spend time with each to make them feel welcome and help them get started learning ballroom and Latin dances.
Chapter dances are not only for chapter members but are also open to the public and are presently held on the first Friday of every month, from 7-10 pm. We also have other dances on special holidays and sometimes with event themes such as Western attire or Red and White on Valentine's Day. Usual attire is dressy/casual.
The annual membership fee to join USA Dance(National) is $35 for social dancers which includes a free subscription of "American Dancer", a magazine published by our national organization, with news and upcoming events such as dance cruises and workshops as well as articles pertaining to the world of ballroom dance.
Becoming a member also entitles you to discounts at not only our chapter dances but also chapter dances anywhere in the country. The entrance fee to our chapter dances is $6 for members and $10 for future members.
We have all found that dancing has become a significant and pleasurable part of our lives that provides fun and camaraderie and hope you will take the time to explore what a difference ballroom and Latin dancing can make in your lives and visit us soon.
