It’s Election Time

ABD elections happen every June for positions taking effect on July 1st. This year the three positions up for election are President, Secretary and Publicity. To be eligible for an office you need to have been a member for one year. The bylaws detail the responsibilities of each board position.

Support your club by serving on the board. We are a totally volunteer organization and rely on our members to be involved and help us promote ballroom dancing in Austin.

Our election committee members are Bruce Uszal, Tabatha Hancock and Mark Coughran. You can submit your nomination to any of them or to any current board member. Call the hotline, 512-989-3939, for more information.

The nomination process ends on June 4th and the election will be held during the June 18th dance which also hosts the Annual Membership Meeting from 7:30 to 8:00. Member pricing for the dance is $3.00! Hope to see you there to support your club.

Ballroom Dancing in Austin

We specialize in ballroom, from the smooth waltz and foxtrot to the sassy cha cha, rumba and bolero. All of the ballroom dances are taught in our group classes and practiced at our social dances.

We hope you will check us out. We are a friendly social club with something for everyone. Partners are not required; we love to mix it up.
