United States Dance Championships, Orlando

If you’re a ballroom dancer wondering where to spend your next vacation, here’s an idea!  The upcoming United States Dance Championships® (USDC) are due to be held in Orlando on September 7th to 11th 2010.

These Championships have been running since 1971 and attract a very high standard of competitors, both amateurs and professional, with a prize pool of over $180,000. The United States representatives for the World Professional Championships are chosen each year at the USDC.

This year the venue is the Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando®.

Unfortunately it’s too late to enter the competition but it should be a worthwhile show for any ballroom enthusiast.   At time of writing, there are still seats available for the big Saturday night show, “40 years – a Night of Champions”.  You can book tickets here.
