Chapter: Southern Arizona, AZ - #4017

USA Dance (Southern AZ) Chapter #4017

 

Southern AZ is a 501c(3) non-profit organization in Tucson, Arizona whose mission is to support and promote community interest in ballroom and other partner dance.

We tailor our mission a little differently from that of the national group because, per capita, the area is home to a very large number of studios, independent instructors, groups, and colleges offering dance instruction. Due to this unique environment, Southern AZ focuses less on teaching ballroom dance and instead provides more opportunities to practice and perform ballroom and other partner dancing skills.

The following opportunities are offered to the Southern Arizona community at little or no cost:
  1. Monthly public dances
  2. Periodic dance clinics
  3. Regional and national USA Dance amateur competition participation
