USA Dance Minnesota Chapter #2011 is a local chapter of the national organization of USA Dance, a nationwide nonprofit organization of thousands of volunteers who love dancing, and appreciate the excitement and romance, as well as the social and health benefits, that dancing brings into their lives.
Our mission is to improve the quality and quantity of dancing in the greater Minneapolis-St. Paul area, to promote dancing in the Twin Cities, and to help interested individuals connect with the dance community.
