 Welcome to USA Dance Chapter 6074

We are the Augusta / Aiken Chapter of The United States Amateur Dance Association.  Established in 1999, we are a non-profit organization for the purpose of promoting ballroom dancing.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

As a chapter of USA Dance, it is our mission to improve the quantity and quality of ballroom dancing in the Central Savannah River Area. We strive to provide a common bond in the dance community by supporting all professional studios as well as amateur dance organizations in their efforts to develop ballroom dancing.

The United States Amateur Dance Association is a national organization devoted to promoting dancing on both a leisure and competitive basis. To learn more about USA Dance, you can click HERE and view their promotional video.

EXCITING NEW DANCE INITIATIVE!

We will enter into a "hat" the name of every Member that attends each monthly dance. At the end of each quarter, we will have a drawing for one free dance entry. Below is the break down of the details.

1) Quarterly drawing for one free dance entry. (March,June, Sept, Dec )
2) Only Members will be eligible.
3) Each dance the Member attends will result in their name being put in the "hat." (So if you attend all 3 dances in the Quarter, you will      have three chances to win)
4) Names in the "hat" will not carry over to the next Quarter. We start new each Quarter.
