Re: Promoting Ballroom Dancing - any ideas? Posted by SteveUrbana 10/12/2011 7:46:00 AM
"Club dancing" mainly Salsa, WC Swing, Hustle, etc. seems to be inhabited by a much younger crowd where singles are quite prevalent, and hence a lot of switching partners.
Also, if you get serious about competing in ballroom (which I highly recommend, since it's hard to learn to dance well in social dance instructional venues), you'll need a fixed partner and once you get one you'll be dancing mostly with them.
You might also check any local colleges/universities for their dance clubs, which are often open to outsiders. Don't worry about them being too small -- I've seen tiny colleges with great ballroom programs!
