Pre-Registration:

Because it worked out so well in the past, we are continuing our 5 and 5 rule, where people can save lots of money when signing up for classes.

Here's how it works. When you pre-register for classes (meaning you tell us via the e-mail that you sent, before the class's first day, to UMBCBallroom@gmail.com that you are going to sign up for an awesome Dance Class), you get $5 off the price of each class for which you are pre-registered.

People who bring in friends to PRE-REGISTER for ballroom classes will receive an additional $5 off their classes... That's $5 off for each friend brought in that pre-registers in a ballroom class. The friend who pre-registers also gets $5 off when they pre-register for a class, as well as $5 off for each additional class pre-registered.

Attention Math Majors: How many friends does a person need to bring in before this person's classes are free?

*FAQ: Pre-Registration ends 24 hours before the first day of class. We print up all the names we have on file of people who have pre-registered, along with how much that person will need to pay (could be $0 if enough friends are brought in. We've already had one girl who did it and another person who came really close), and bring that list to the first day of classes. This first day of classes is when people pay once, and it includes all of those classes for the entire semester. All prices are a one time fee for the entire semester. Please e-mail UMBCBallroom@gmail.com if you have any questions.

*NOTE* Discounts do not apply to Bachata classes. This particular class has a flat rate of $30 per semester.

Fall 2014 Class Schedule

The rates are a one-time fee for the whole semester. We do not have free evaluation classes and there are NO REFUNDS.

Students have until the third week of classes to register.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Monday Ballroom Classes

Classes start on September 15th!
Pre-Registration discounts currently available!

Location: THAC 119

Note: THAC refers to the Theater and Academic Services Building.
It is the building between the Commons and the tennis courts, on the side of the Quad.

Beginner-III classes require instructor approval prior to enrollment. Students who have yet to get instructor's permission, regardless of dance background, are encouraged to pre-register for, and attend, the Beginner-I classes. Students wishing to advance may talk to the instructor on the first day of class about attending both classes and then figuring out which class is best for them. The paperwork is easy to change, but all pre-registration discounts end 24 hrs before the first day of each class, so please pre-register while discounts are still available!

Monday Nightclub Classes

Salsa Classes start on September 15th!

Location: Sondheim 105

Students who want to take "Intermediate Salsa: Dancing at a Higher Level" and who have not completed this instructor's Beginner class, need to get the instructor's permission before enrolling in the Intermediate class. Students currently awaiting instructor's permission should also attend the Beginner class until they have been granted permission to be in the Intermediate class. Switching a person's paperwork from Beginner to Intermediate is simple. Finding out what one has missed due to not having attended the proper class is much more complicated.

*PLEASE NOTE: There are no discounts for the Bachata classes. Everything is a flat rate for all who partake.
