About the Club

Founded in 2005, the University of Waterloo  Ballroom Dance Club began as merely a few friends who had an interest in ballroom dancing. Now a not-for-profit sports club under UW Athletics  and Recreational Services, we have grown considerably in both size and in quality in the past decade.


​Throughout the years, our aim has always been to provide high-quality instruction in international-style  ballroom dancing at student-friendly costs, and to foster a welcoming  dance community here at the university. We offer a selection of classes taught by professional instructors, numerous dance opportunities, and  social events, ask us about it!
