It is true that ballroom dancing is a competitive sport. However, the beauty of dancing is that it is a skill that transcends far beyond the confines of the dancesport competition. Phoenix is host to a vibrant social dance community, and Devil DanceSport is ASU's link to the ballroom community in the area.
ASU Latin/Swing/Ballroom: Your connection to social dance
Devil DanceSport maintains a separate Facebook group page, ASU Latin/Swing/Ballroom
, that focuses on opportunities to go social dancing. We recommend you join that group to receive regular updates of social dance opportunities in the Valley. Some of the updates that you will receive by joining the group include:
- Sponsored outings: We understand that going to a dance by yourself can be an intimidating experience, especially if you are new to dancing, or don't know anyone who frequents the venue you are attending. In order to make those unpleasant experiences a thing of the past, Devil DanceSport will sponsor and organize group outings to local social dances. Moreover, in select occasions, Devil DanceSport members will receive discounted or free admission to weekly socials!
- Lessons: We have planned regular beginner-level lessons that will cover the nightclub dances (e.g. Salsa, Bachata, Swing, Hustle) to ensure that you can defend yourself when you go out to dance. We want you to have a good time!
- Workshops: In addition to the beginner lessons, we will host advanced workshops for some of the more popular social dances. These will occur throughout the year. These workshops will be open to the public, but Devil DanceSport members will exclusively receive huge discounts in admission costs!
We have compiled a list of venues that offer regular dances in our Places to Dance
