Mormons have a thing for dancing: Dancesport USA at BYU

Each year Brigham Young University is host to the annual Dancesport USA event, featuring professional and amateur ballroom dancers from around the United States, and some from abroad.  BYU is chosen each year to host the event due to its impressive dance facilities and department.  BYU boasts the largest collegiate dance department in the United States!

I have attended the Dancesport competition numerous times while I studied at BYU, and enjoyed the wonderful performances by children, teens, college students, and young professional dancers.
