BOYS IN BALLROOM DANCE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
Why did we create this program?
THE BEAT BALLROOM COMPANY created this program to show our support for Boys participatin in ballroom dance. It used to be that a gentlemen was considered socially awkward and outcast if he did not have the skill of knowing how to dance with a lady. Today, we find the reverse. In most cities it is very common for boys to be professional dancers, here in Billings, our male dancers are PIONEERS to this sport and art form. We want to show them that they are important and vital to dancesport. It is a fact that if there weren't any male dancers, ballroom dancing simply wouldn't exist.
