In accordance with USA Dance policies for amateur dancesport athletes, we do not promote ourselves as professional dancers or compete as professionals.

Our Sponsors

These are the people and organizations that make our dancing possible:

We are always in search of new sponsors to defray the costs of competitive ballroom dancing: lessons, shoes, costumes, travel, and competition registration, among others.  Please contact us if you would like to become a sponsor, or contribute using this handy PayPal donation button!
