USA Dance Inc is organized and operates exclusively for charitable and educational purposes and is approved by the Internal Revenue Service as a Section 501©(3) nonprofit organization. Donations to USA Dance are tax deductible at fair market value.


The purpose of the USA Dance is to promote the growth of all styles and forms of ballroom dancing, both competitive and recreational social dancing. To this purpose, a network of chapters in each state has been formed.

USA Dance organizes and supports educational programs among the public about the healthful aspects of recreational ballroom dancing and Dancesport, the competitive form of ballroom dancing. These programs emphasize the physical, mental and social benefits of dancing and include the expansion of dancing skills among those of all ages and capabilities.

Our Chapter

The Charlotte Chapter of USA Dance provides support for and promotion of ballroom dance in many ways and our goals are to educate our community on the benefits and fun of dance. We provide opportunities to socialize at our monthly dances and special events as well as to support our community through scholarships for USA Dance competitors and fundraisers for other charitable organizations. Our Charlotte Chapter of the national organization is growing every day and we always welcome new members. If you love social dancing and would like to meet others with similar interests, please consider becoming a member of our chapter.

We hold monthly dances on the 2nd Saturday of each month from 8-11PM. Our dances consist of a ballroom, latin or social dance lesson followed by two hours of open dancing. A lovely buffet is provided and of course, lots of music by a local DJ and dancing! Everyone is welcome and no partner is necessary!
