USA Dance (Southern Minnesota) Chapter #2017

Welcome to the Southern, MN Chapter of USA Dance!

Ballroom, Cha Cha, Argentine Tango, West Coast Swing

Our mission is to improve the quantity and quality of ballroom dance in the US.

Dear USA Dance Members and Patrons,


I hope this message finds you and yours well. I know it's been a long time since we've all danced together and we miss you all dearly. Our top priority is the safety of our dancers and our board is working to devise a safety plan that meets current safety standards. Unfortunately we simply don't feel ready to facilitate a dance yet. Eagle's Club has opened their patio to guests, but have yet to open their dance hall. We are considering options for outdoor dances, but are also in need to comply with CDC recommendations for large group gatherings, which we are currently navigating. I am hopeful that we will be ready with guidelines as they pertain to USA Dance events by July. Some considerations include:


-Sanitation supplies: PPE such as masks and gloves for organizers, disinfectants for tables and chairs and hand sanitizer.

-Increased diligence to minimize shared materials i.e. writing utensils at registration desk, for water cups, etc.

- Encouraged use of hand washing or sanitizing between dances and to stay home if feeling ill. 


Once we establish expectations, we will communicate those to our community. Things will look different when we return, but in this time of uncertainty, we must look out for one another so that we can continue sharing our love of ballroom dancing. We are so thankful for your loyalty and support of USA Dance #2017.  

In the meantime, Dahl Dance Center and Blue Moon Ballroom are providing private lessons and we encourage you to take advantage of their expertise and dance opportunities in our community.  

Safe Regards,
Rachel Nguyen
Chapter #2017 President
