Fall 2022 updates:

Penn Latin and Ballroom Dance (PLBD) is a student organization at the University of Pennsylvania. We teach and promote Ballroom and Latin dancing to Penn students and other members of the Philadelphia community. No partner needed. We welcome beginners! In fact, most people currently on the team had no prior dance experience.

In addition to providing DanceSport lessons and social dance lessons, we compete at collegiate competitions and put together dance performances throughout the year.

If you don't want to compete and just want to take dance lessons - that's perfectly fine too! Please check out our FAQ or contact us if you still have more questions. (See also: who's responsible for all this?!)
