USA Dance (Ozarks) Chapter #2044
Promoting ballroom dancing throughout the Ozarks!
2020 VISION: "By year 2020, we will have nurtured and sustained 500 additional ballroom dancers into our Ozarks dance community."
Greetings from USA Dance Chapter #2044 President, Jared Vandersluis, and our Board!
We are so blessed to experience the recreational, physical, and mental benefits of ballroom dancing, and delighted to share them with you. Check our calendar, plan to join us at upcoming events, but don't stop there. That box of links in our upper right-hand page can take you to information about ballroom dancing: in general, in our local Springfield, MO (417) area, and at the National level dance competitions and cruises. But don't forget to follow that Facebook link as well. That's where we put our Chapter's informal fun-stuff.

USA Dance Mission
The main objective of USA Dance is to promote ballroom dancing in the United States. This is accomplished through the establishment of local chapters. Each chapter strives to improve the quality of individual dancing by offering lessons as a part of their monthly dance.
USA Dance serves as the National Governing Body for DanceSport - the competitive wing of ballroom dancing. As such, it organizes and supports dance programs that highlight both the recreational and competitional aspects of ballroom dancing. Dance knows no age limitation and is there for all ages to enjoy. It creates an affordable opportunity to participate in ballroom dancing and DanceSport.
