Every Sunday afternoon and/or evening at the Chevy Chase Ballroom
you're invited to

to include training for social dancing plus


(Visit www.LambdaDanceSportDC.org)

followed by general dancing, practice and other mini-workshops in Salsa, Disco/Hustle, Argentine Tango and more, by request at the Chevy Chase Ballroom.


The Grand Ballroom of The HiltonTowers Chicago...
The location of the DanceSport competition during Gay Games, Chicago, 2006.
(Plan to join us either as a spectator or competitor for two of the most exciting LGBT dance events
that you'll ever experience during World OutGames Cologne, 2009 and Gay Games Copenhagen, 2010)



The goal of "Lambda DanceSPORT DC", besides just encouraging better dancing in the LGBT community, is to promote social dancing by some and competition by others during the major upcoming LGBT dance events, Gay Games VIII, Copenhagen, 2010 and the World OutGames II Cologne, 2009. Prepare to join members of the LGBT community, their friends and families every Sunday in studio "B" during the "Sunday Salsa, Brazilian Samba, Rueda and Tango Social" classes and dance party at the Chevy Chase Ballroom. We offer beginner and up instruction in the Gay Games® and World OutGames Ballroom, Latin, Swing and Country/Western dances for both social and/or competitive purposes or for dancing at upcoming IAGLCWDC (International Association of Gay/Lesbian Country and Western Dance Clubs) Country/Western competitions or exhibitions. All of this followed by general dancing, practice and other mini-workshops in Salsa, Disco/Hustle, Argentine Tango and more, by request of anyone attending at the Chevy Chase Ballroom. Most of those attending will NOT be competing, so please don't let the decision not to compete discourage you.

As official party animals, "Lambda DanceSPORT DC" will be assisting in the hosting and organizing of future local dance fund-raisers and events for the purpose of assisting those who plan to travel to Gay Games and World OutGames, along with fund-raisers for other Team DC (the DC Council of Sports) sports organizations, of which Lambda DanceSport DC is an associate organization, by request. Those who may benefit may be competitors or merely spectators or assistants to the competitors.

Whether you're merely interested in couples' dancing on a strictly social level of all dance styles, future C/W competition in IAGLCWDC (The International Association of Gay/Lesbian Country & Western Dance Clubs), competing in the beginner or intermediate levels of Ballroom, Latin or Country/Western of Gay Games® VIII, Copenhagen, 2010, or the World OutGames II Cologne, 2009, this weekly dance event is a great way for members of the LGBT community to become more familiar with and accomplished in all of the popular social couples' dances.

For those who were able to watch the 3-dance performance of Russell Halley and Jorge Guzman during the 2003 Atlantic States Gay Rodeo Association (ASGRA) performance or at any of their other performances across the U.S. and around the world, this is some of the training we'll be teaching (on a more beginner level, of course). Absolutely anyone could be able to compete in either the beginner or intermediate levels in Gay Games® VIII, 2010 or the World OUTGames II, 2009, or dance in any exhibition or competition in C/W, Ballroom, Latin or Swing by next year.

OR....
