West Coast Swing, Buckeye Open Showcase, VIP Party and Ballroom Dance Parties!

Hello Everyone,

Do you want to get better at West Coast Swing? Make some friends? Dance around town for fun? Come learn a routine with us in 6 weeks! Starting this Saturday at 12:45pm, we will have 1.5 hour classes each week, there is also video of the routine, written out summary, and people who are willing to practice with you!  We already have 10 people involved and would love to have 10 more! :) Would you like to join us to dance our Spring West Coast Swing Rally?  The dances around town will be June 1st!

There are 2 Way you are invited to participate in The Buckeye Open Showcase...

#1. You are invited to dance any or all of the dances you know with a partner as a performance and with feedback.

Whether you are currently taking lessons, or just enjoy dancing this is a great opportunity to get some video of you doing your thing at an event for minimal cost... a great way to be involved!  Deadline is May 1st to join the event.

#2. You are invited to come and watch this wonderful day of dance performances!

The performances start at 1pm at Valley Dale Ballroom (1590 Sunbury Rd, Columbus, OH.  If you are wondering what to expect, think Dancing with the Stars but with local students and instructors.  The day will start with a variety of performances, and end with some social dancing, professional performances, hors d'oeuvres, and awards!

Buckeye Open Showcase Frequently Asked Questions

Where? Valley Dale Ballroom in Columbus

When? May 19th: 1pm-approx 6pm

Can I come watch? Yes, spectator tickets are already on sale.  It's only $20 a person in advance to enjoy the entire day (tickets are $25 at the door). You can click this link to purchase tickets now! 

Will there be social dancing? Approximately the last hour of the Showcase will include hors d'oeuvres, top performances, social dancing, and awards!

What is a heat? A heat is an opportunity for those who are working on a particular dance (many times competitors or private lesson students) to get on the floor, dance to the provided music for their particular dance(s), get professional video and feedback from our professional adjudicators.  Heats are limited to 1 closed and 1 open per dance per partnership.

What do I wear if I participate in the heats? Practicewear or competition wear is perfect.  For the ladies, a short skirt for rhythm, long skirt for smooth.  For the gentlemen, dance pants with a button down shirt and tie.

Why would I want to come watch the Showcase? If you enjoy Dancing with the Stars, this is a similar type of event.  There will be many fun, choreographed numbers to specific music with costumes as well as some heats where you will see people of all levels put their best foot forward (pun intended)!
