Ballroom Dancers To Organize Local Chapter
The United States Amateur Ballroom Dancers Association (USABDA) has announced plans to organize a Chapter for recreational and competitive dancers in the Fishkill area. A local steering committee will be formed to guide the project and enroll members. USABDA, a non-profit, volunteer organization, is the governing body for amateur ballroom dancing in the United States and has chapters all over the country. The basic purpose of each chapter is to create opportunities for affordable ballroom dancing in each local community and to educate the public regarding the physical, mental, and social benefits of ballroom dancing.
