This is the official website of the New York State Capital District chapter (#3014) of USA Dance, the national amateur ballroom dancers' association (formerly USABDA). We serve the entire Capital Region, including Albany, Troy, Schenectady, Saratoga, Latham, and Clifton Park. Our mission is to promote ballroom dancing and its healthful benefits in three ways: ballroom as a social activity; ballroom as a form of exercise; and ballroom as a sport (aka Dancesport).
