This is the web site and home page of Sandusky Ohio Chapter 2094 of USA Dance Inc.
We are a local chapter of a non-profit national organization that encourages self-expression through ballroom dancing, socially as well as competitively.
We believe that our focus on ballroom dancing contributes to the mental and physical aspects of well-being....... in short, it's good for your body, heart, mind and spirit!
Our mission is to improve the quality and quantity of ballroom dancing in the United States, by making dance happen locally.*
On November 19 Chapter 2094 members and guests danced in the grand upper ballroom of Milan Township Hall, 25 Park Street, Milan, Ohio.
Linda Crystal of Crystal Creations Studio in North Ridgeville presented a dance lesson featuring Bolero rhythm at 7 pm, while Tom and Linda Ward provided the music. The lesson was very well received and many guests commented on the teacher's skill. Linda stayed until 10 pm and danced with everyone, much to the delight of the crowd. We hope she returns frequently.
The board meeting at 6pm resulted in the election of a new board of directors for 2017, and the new board met to elect officers . Results will appear soon. A schedule of dances for 2017 was discussed and it was decided that dances should be held on the third Saturday of every month, except for April. Easter Sunday is one day after the third Saturday, and the board chose to shift the April dance to the 22.
The December 10 event in Milan will feature instruction in dance floor movement and styling by a ballet teacher.
The DJ publishes a playlist and it is available at every guest table. The playlist provides a variety of ballroom dance music in strict ballroom tempo. Music requests will be entertained by the DJ if the specific musical selection is brought to the DJ table early in the evening on a CD provided by the guest. Please print the name of the selection and the track number and add your name so that the desired selection can be located and played and the CD returned to you. The DJ will try to work your request into his playlist during the evening.

*USA DANCE chapters create dance opportunities locally by organizing affordable social dances, dance lessons, exhibitions and workshops. Chapter members often present dance education and live demonstrations at senior centers, nursing/retirement homes, schools, shopping malls, and other public places, while striving to educate the public regarding the health and social benefits of ballroom dancing. The goal of each chapter is to serve the national mission on a grassroots level, as a leader and motivator for ballroom dance activities in the community, colleges and schools.
