Blend of World-Class Ballroom and Latin Dancing Showcased at BYU Ballroom Dance in Concert


The Ballroom Dance Company will perform their “Ode to Joy” and “Ritmo del Corazon” medleys for the last time


On April 12 and 13, 160 students will come together to present “BYU’s Ballroom Dance in Concert.” The performance promises to showcase equal measures of quality dancing and theatrical spectacle.

In the world of ballroom, most performances are based in competitions for duos, making the concert a unique opportunity to see a more cohesive show.

“Typically in the discipline of ballroom dance, you see couples dancing,” said Curt Holman, artistic director of BYU’s Ballroom Dance Company. “It’s really rare to take a group of people and create an ensemble piece that has eight couples. In some of our beginning teams, we have 16 couples on the floor. When you’re able to do that, it becomes very entertaining for the audience.”
