Welcome to the Houston Chapter 5003 of USA Dance! ......................

USA Dance is a nationwide nonprofit organization of thousands of volunteers who love ballroom dancing and appreciate the excitement and romance, as well as the social and health benefits that ballroom dancing brings into their lives.

At a grass roots level in communities, colleges and secondary schools all over the country, USA Dance volunteers provide opportunities for the public to engage in affordable social ballroom dancing and competitive DanceSport activities. Beginners are welcomed, helped to get started and then assisted in achieving their goals. USA Dance's goal is for everyone to dance!

SPECIAL NOTE: As many of you know, William Ashworth, a dance instructor and member of our local chapter who has supported us in many ways over the years, had a massive heart attack in late October of 2016. Lucky to have survived he was released from the rehab facility recently and is now at home recovering. Still unable to walk much - it is likely that he will be unable to dance for several more months and needs our help. One of his dance partners/students, Lee Callaway, created a GoFundMe account to assist him and his family until they can get back on their feet again.
