Welcome to the Ballroom Dance Team

The WPI Ballroom Dance Team offers many opportunities for dancing at our weekly lessons, social dance trips, and competitions. We hope to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere for dancing whether you’re interested in the competitive or social aspects. We hope you’ll join us!

Weekly Lessons:

Beginner Lessons - Offered every Monday and Thursday from 8:30-9:30pm. These lessons are for anyone interested in ballroom. No experience or partner required!

Intermediate Lessons - Offered Mondays from 9:30-10:30pm and Wednesdays from 6:30-7:30pm. 

Advanced Lessons - Offered Thursdays from 9:30-10:30pm.

Social Dancing: 

WPI BDT often makes trips, as a team, to other colleges and studios for social dances. This is a great way to meet other dancers and practice all you’ve learned.


WPI Ballroom is very active on the competition scene, and many of our members choose to follow a more competitive track. We compete at approximately 12 major competitions throughout the year; however, choosing to become involved in competitions is completely voluntary and not a required part of being an active member of the team.
