Welcome & Thank You
Dear Athletes, Fans, Sponsors, Officials, Coaches, Parents, Social Dancers, Vendors, and Fellow Volunteers:
On behalf of the USA Dance Board of Directors and the Ballroom DanceSport Council, I extend a warm invitation to join us at the 2023 USA Dance National Ballroom DanceSport Championships. At this event you will observe America’s best athletes competing to become crowned the National Champions of their divisions. This is also the National DanceSport event that determines which athletes will represent the United States at upcoming World DanceSport Federation’s (WDSF) World Championships and Cups.
Please visit the informative pages of this dedicated website to learn more. Register for the competition, purchase tickets, and connect with the Hyatt Regency for your reservations. Whether you are competing in one event or in a multitude of styles and divisions, or just watching, we hope you can stay for the entire three days.
President | USA Dance, Inc.
As organizing chairperson, I am pleased to welcome back most of the 2022 planning team. After having such a successful Nationals in Pittsburgh, it helps to have continuity as we move to St. Louis for what we expect to be another outstanding USA Dance 2023 National Ballroom DanceSport Championships. Although we will miss having the volunteer support of a strong chapter, Social Vice President Lolita Brawner is stepping up to fill the gap with a Social Leadership Conference planned during the weekend. In addition, there will be a social dance and workshops. So, dancers, encourage your local board members to join you in St. Louis where they can cheer you on to victory and enjoy the social activities themselves during the weekend. Working together to grow the organization makes USA Dance much stronger.
On the competition side, we look forward to again having a wholly complete ballroom Nationals; all age groups, skill levels, amateur, pro-am and professional. We’ve got it all!
Join us as we celebrate our unity and share the excitement as new champions are crowned.
As the song goes, “Meet Me in St. Louis.”
