Dancers (L-R) are Marvin Johnson, Khalil Ramadi, Nicole LaBarge, Stephanie Metzger, Christian Pastor, Giannina Viruet, Meghan Hennigan, and Tom Mueller.

The Penn State Ballroom Dance Club was honored to join the Blue Band, A Touch of Blue, The Blue Band Silks, and feature twirler Matt Freeman for a half-time performance at the Penn State versus Purdue football game on November 16, 2013. The dancers performed a choreography to the "Mambo" of West Side Story for an audience in Beaver Stadium of approximately 100,000, and were the first ever invited guests of the Blue Band! The Ballroom Dance Club extends many thanks to everyone with whom they shared the field and all of the staff who worked so hard to make the performance such a wonderful and fun experience. Click here to watch the show as it was performed in the BJC for Tailgreat before the game!  

Following the performance on the field, the club celebrated in Heritage Hall at the Post-Game Gala Semi-formal where new dancers learned the basics of various dance styles and a Jack & Jill contest brought everyone onto the floor for a fun social-style contest/mixer.

Where: Heritage Hall, HUB Robeson Center
When: Saturday, November 16th @ 10pm

Cheer for our dancers during 1/2 Time at the Penn State v. Purdue game this weekend!! 

Then....come dance the night away with us to the music of all your favorite dances at the Post Game Gala Semi-Formal! Time to celebrate that it is almost Thanksgiving Break, right?! Best part is that it's FREE! Non-BDC members are welcome to attend too, so INVITE YOUR FRIENDS!! :D (You will be surprised how many people want to learn how to dance, but just need someone to bring them out of their shell!)

Mini-lessons in all the dances will happen in the beginning, and we'll be having a JACK AND JILL CONTEST! 

Jack and Jill contests are contests in social dancing where you get matched up with a random partner and try to out-dance everyone else on the floor! No need to have much dance experience! It's just for fun! 

See you on the dance floor ~
