The Columbia University Ballroom Dance Team offers 10 weeks of classes per semester (Fall and Spring). Members can choose to join the competitive classes (Latin and Standard), or the social classes, or both.

New members can join the competitive class at the beginning of every semester (Fall and Spring) and the social class is open throughout the year.

* If you join both Standard/Latin and decide to compete, competition registration fees are compensated (around $45 per competition! and 4-5 competitions per semester).
* Non-competing members pay the equivalent of about five dollars per class! This is a great deal considering most classes in the city cost over $50 per class.
