The Cal Poly DanceSport Team is hosting our eigth annual Mustang Ball Ballroom DanceSport Competition on Saturday, February 28th, 2015.
The mission of the Mustang Ball is to offer an opportunity for people of all ages to watch and experience the broad multi-cultural aspects of Ballroom, Latin, and Nightclub dances. This unique event will showcase the talents of local dancers, as well as participants from across the state in the dances such as the Waltz, Salsa, Tango, Rumba, Swing, ChaCha, Foxtrot, and Paso Doble. The event will also feature a formation team competition, a collegiate team match, a professional dance showcase, and other fun events throughout the day.
We are building on the success of our last seven competitions. On average, our previous competitions have had over 450 spectators in attendance, and feature up to 200 dance competitors from Cal Poly and other universities across the state competing in 75 separate dance events. The competition is typically covered by news media outlets including KSBY, the Telegram Tribune, the SLO City News and the Mustang Daily.
