Okay, so dance sport (read:  competitive ballroom dancing club) isn’t really a gym.  I’ve seen Strictly Ballroom at least once a year since I was eight and let me tell you, nothing makes me want to get off my butt more than watching ballroom dancers.  Cal Poly DanceSport meets most Thursdays of the quarter either in Chumash auditorium or a disclosed room in the architecture building; check out their Facebook page for updates. Anyone can join!  Serious dancers attend extra practices on Tuesdays and compete in  regional competitions at San Jose State, Stanford, and UC San Diego.  Even sweeter?  Cal Poly’s annual Mustang Ball, usually held spring quarter in our very own Chumash Auditorium.  The Ball is a community dance competition and showcase for DanceSport; last year’s special guests were professional competitive dancers Steve Vasco & Joanna Siekierska.
