Welcome! Our mission is to improve the quality and the quantity of ballroom dancing in the United States.
Welcome to the website of USA Dance Quad Cities! We are one of the most active ballroom dance groups in Iowa, with a wonderful group of dancers and a devoted following. We hope you can join us; we'd love to see you here!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with USA Dance, we are a non-profit national organization that encourages self-expression through ballroom dancing, socially as well as competitively. We believe that our focus on ballroom dancing contributes to the mental and physical aspects of well-being, in short, it's good for your body, heart, mind and spirit!
USA Dance chapters create dance opportunities for local citizens by organizing affordable social dances, dance lessons and workshops. Chapter members often present dance education and live demonstrations in nursing homes, retirement homes, hospitals, schools, shopping malls, and other public places, while striving to educate the public regarding the health and social benefits of ballroom dancing. The goal of each chapter is to serve the national mission on a grassroots level, as a leader and a motivation for ballroom dance activities in the community, colleges and schools.
We hold a monthly dance, usually on the second Saturday of each month. For a complete listing of our schedule, head to our section on Upcoming Dances . Most of our dances are DJ'ed by Rick Thames, who plays a mix of the ballroom dance standards, with some more modern stuff thrown in.
