CLUB HISTORY & GENERAL INFO

The Latin/Ballroom Dance Club began in the Fall of 1967 as the result of one man’s dream to be able to dance socially to Latin music. During that time, the Waltz, Foxtrot and Swing were the standard dances. Our social dance club continues to this day, providing dancing pleasure and a friendly social atmosphere to our members. Our Latin tradition continues with music appropriate for the Cha-Cha, Rumba, Tango, Bolero, Samba, Mambo, and even the Merengue. And of course, the standard Ballroom is also part of our dance program.

This is a Members-Only Club. Our dances are not open to the general public and are exclusively for members and their guests. This benefit ensures ample room for everyone on the dance floor! Our Club provides dancing at some of the finest facilities in the surrounding Milwaukee area. Currently, we hold our dances at the Sterling Chalet in Hubertus, Chandelier Ballroom in Hartford, and Wisconsin Club in Milwaukee. Our music is provided by professional DJs who know our strict tempo requirements for Latin & Ballroom dancing. We host six dances per season, from September thru June. Dance reminders are sent to our members prior to each dance event.

Membership dues are currently $55.00 per person and payable prior to the start of each season. This covers our upfront costs to book our dance venues, music, printing of club materials, postage, and other administrative needs to set up our dances. Member-sponsored guests are admitted at the rate of $15.00 per dance, and advance guest reservations are requested. For any scheduled formal dinner dances, an additional fee will be required for attending members and their guests.

Prospective members can still join after the start of our dance season, as space permits given our 200-member limit. For more info, please send an email to: LatinBallroomClub.Wi@gmail.com.

We invite you to join the Latin/Ballroom Dance Club for a fun season of dancing!
