Ballroom Company

Snow College’s Ballroom Dance Program is a great experience. We offer several classes from novice through intermediate and from social to latin. Denise Olsen teaches the fundamentals for anyone just getting started or has some experience and want to improve their skills. These classes offer the chance to socialize with other dancers in the labs.
Our Ballroom Dance Company is a club, class and performing group all in one. We also offer retreats where dancers can break away from the rigors of college life and relax with fellow dancers. A lot of individual attention is focus on our dancers to help them improve and to perform dynamically. We perform multiple smaller shows and a big show every year.

For our students interested in the technique of ballroom dancing or want to further improve their skill Dave Peterson teaches an advanced technique class. Students who are in the Ballroom Dance Company are typically required to take the advanced technique. This class offers a chance to break down the essential movements of ballroom dance as well as learn about the culture of it. Topics range from international dance standards to available careers in ballroom dance. Students who take this class will feel ready to continue on in their dancing after Snow College.
