Bringing Ballroom, Latin and Swing to Syracuse Since 1991.

Welcome to SU Ballroom – your source for all things ballroom, latin, and swing at Syracuse University.

We offer all kinds of dance experiences – from performing and competing to social dancing for fun on the weekends.

Join us Tuesday nights from 7-9 pm in the Flanagan dance studio for anything from East Coast and West Coast Swing to salsa, merengue and bachata. Learn West Coast or Lindy Hop from 7-8, then try your new skills in a social dance ’til 9.

Or, check out our ballroom and latin lessons, Friday nights from 7-9 pm in the Flanagan dance studio. We’ll cover everything from waltz, tango and foxtrot to cha-cha, rumba, samba and jive.

All dancers are encouraged to join the performance team, meeting every Sunday from 2-4 pmĀ in the South Campus Skybarn.

Never danced before? We’ll teach you. Been dancing for years? You’ve found your team.

Are you ready? Let’s Dance.

 

Andrew’s been dancing ever since his sister came home after school in need of a dance partner. He competes in both ballroom and West Coast Swing and is always searching for new songs to choreograph to. He graduated from Central Michigan University in 2014 and spent some time at Upstate Medical University and various biomedical firms before finding his current role at Ichor Therapeutics. He loves birds, traveling for dance events, and the sound of a good 80’s synth.

Bethany started dancing ballet, tap and jazz as soon as she could walk. She found her happy place in modern classes as she got older, and helped out as a student teacher at her studio in high school. Later, she stumbled upon ballroom and swing as a freshman at SU. Since then, ballroom and swing have taken over her life, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Bethany is a big fan of tea, Harry Potter, and Irish music.
