Welcome to the Capital USA Dance March Update

Greetings, USA Dancers!

It's a big month for dance in the Capital District. Our little corner of the world is getting ready to green, and in more ways than one. Time to welcome Spring (and St. Patty!) with a dance celebration! Read on to see what's coming up.

See you this Sunday...



This March signifies two important dates for USA Dance. First, March of 2015 marks the fiftieth anniversary of USA Dance. Second, our little chapter was formed seventeen years ago this month! It's hard to believe we've been around that long, and it's amazing that our members are still with us and going strong.

The board would like to thank everyone who's been with us on this ride, and we hope to recognize as many of you as possible at this month's dance, so come on out and help us celebrate! (More detail on that below)


RPI Ballroom Dance Competition

This Saturday, RPI will be holding its annual ballroom dance competition. As always, we expect a spectacular extravaganza of ballroom dance, and we hope you'll all come out and help us cheer the home team on! As always, USA Dance is a sponsor of the competition, and our Ron Curry Foundation will be honoring the first place bronze-level couple in each of the four styles with a $75 dance scholarship!

All are welcome to spectate or compete! Saturday, March 14th, 2015. Doors open at 7 AM, competition to begin at 8 AM and continue until 5 PM.

For the schedule and more details, you can visit the competition website.


Membership Contest

From March through June of this year, we will be running a membership contest for the chapter. For this drive, we are asking each of our members to go out and 'double themselves' by bringing a new member into the fold! So get out there, and beat the bushes for new members. There will be fabulous prizes for the top three recruiters!

Winners will be announced during the June dance, which will be the last opportunity to register new members for the contest. Stay tuned for more details and procedures!


Capital USA Dance March Dance

Our March dance will be held on Sunday, March 15th at 6 P.M. Our venue will once again be the Polish Community Center at 225 Washington Avenue Extension, Albany, NY. Our DJ will be Dan DeBennedetto and there will be a waltz lesson with Holly Livingston from 6:15 to 7:00. Our showcase will be presented by the Holly Marie Dance Team.

We have a triple theme this month, celebrating St. Patty's Day, USA Dance's fiftieth anniversary, and our own chapter's seventeenth anniversary, so be prepared in your green and your nostalgia! We'd also love it if everyone who's helped and supported us over the years came out to be recognized:

  • Did you serve on the Steering Committee that formed our chapter?
  • Have you served on the board of directors?
  • Have you been a member since March 1998?
  • Have you taught a lesson for us?
  • Have you been a DJ for us?
  • Did you dance on one of the many formation teams?
  • Did you travel to Montreal, NYC or New Jersey with us?
  • Did you attend our 10th Anniversary Celebration?

If any of these describe you, or if you've supported us in any other way, we want to see you in person and recognize your contributions!

As always, admission is $10 for members, $13 for non-members, $5 for students and free for volunteers and under 18.
