Heartland Ballroom Dancers is a chapter of the non-profit USA Dance, Inc., the nation-wide organization of social, college, and competitive Amateur Ballroom Dancers in the United States. It functions as the governing body in the USA for amateur ballroom dancing (also known as Dancesport). USA Dance has received affiliation with both the US Olympic Committee and International Olympic Committee.
USA Dance organizes local, regional, and national dance championships; selects amateur dancers to represent the United States in world dance competitions and helps finance their participation. The Youth College Network (YCN) is active throughout the United States, bringing the excitement and elegance of ballroom dancing to high school, college and university students.
The Heartland Chapter of USA Dance organizes and fosters low-cost social dances, dance lessons, workshops, and charitable events in the Indianapolis and surrounding area. Chapter members present dance demonstrations in schools, shopping malls, hospitals, nursing homes, retirement centers, and other public places and strive to educate the public regarding the health benefits of ballroom dancing. Chapter volunteers also organize and promote ballroom dance clubs in local schools and colleges.
Monthly dances are frequently preceded by a dance lesson taught by a local professional. Yearly dance events include fundraisers for local charities and the youth dance community. The Heartland Chapter is not affiliated with any dance school or studio and is open to dancers of all ages and abilities.
The Heartland board meets once a month after the monthly dance. Heartland board meetings are open to all members. To attend, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call: 317-759-0171 for time and location.
