Quotes I was first introduced to Miami Ballroom when the team performed at my freshman orientation. I thought it was one of the coolest things I had ever seen and I knew right away that I wanted to be able to do that stuff. I was a quiet guy with few friends and no dance experience at all, but I took a chance and signed up. I ended up liking it even more than I thought I would. The lessons quickly became my favorite part of the week. Now it's one year later and I couldn't be happier that I made the decision to join. I became a member of the performance team and the club has become like a family to me. Miami Ballroom has given me friends, memories, a more enriched life, and the opportunity to do awesome things I would only be able to fantasize about if it weren't for them. Thanks Miami Ballroom!

Quotes Miami Ballroom is amazing. Learning something new never felt so entertaining. It gave me something to look forward to every week and I would get happy just by walking in. Everyone is so pleasant and welcoming. I really found a community that I enjoyed. Quotes

Quotes I could begin this by saying all the great things that being part of ballroom has to offer, but I don't particularly want to write a 5 page essay. Instead of talking about all the fun, great times, amazing people, cool activities, fantastic performances, incredible competitions that you will experience I'll just simply state the obvious: join miami ballroom, as a member or if you want to try out for the team, either way I KNOW you wont regret it.

The best club on campus

Quotes Ballroom is great, but Miami Ballroom is fantastic! I wish I had started my very first semester as a freshman. I love dancing and I have met some very good friends in this ballroom club. Everyone is nice, they know how to enjoy themselves, and with every lesson we all learn so much! It's worth it for you time here at the U! Quotes

Miami Ballroom All the Way!

Quotes I have to say that joining Miami Ballroom is the one of the best things that I have done in my life. My life had a huge different since the decision I made. I used to be a outsider like many people, and I did not enjoy my freshmen year because I was too shy and intimidated to go out and make friends, instead, I spent most of my time in my dorm, wasting my time. But everything started to change since I went to my first free lesson by Miami ballroom. People here are so nice and welcoming, and easy to hang out with. I feel so lucky I have the opportunity to meet such a diverse group of people and be friend with them. This is a family, warm and happy. Most of all, in the meanwhile, you can become a ballroom dancer in this family while having so much fun in your life. Quotes

Quotes I'm so glad I joined Miami Ballroom when I was in UM on a study abroad program. Everyone was really warm, welcoming, and fun to hang out with, whether on the dance floor or off! I really loved how there was an amazing, infectious enthusiasm and passion for ballroom that I'd never experienced in any ballroom club or school I'd joined before. Love you, Miami Ballroom! Quotes

Quotes I'm not a student or a recent graduate. I'm older than most of the students' parents and formerly on staff at UM. Miami Ballroom isn't just for students, and we've had a nice group of "grown-ups" over the years.. I got involved four or five years ago, having had some ballroom instruction when I was young, and it brought dancing back into my life. It has been lots of fun, and I've met some wonderful people.

Quotes I was a member of Miami Ballroom for all four of my years at the University of Miami (I graduated in 2010). I had never ballroom danced before, and I loved it! It was challenging, exciting, and a great way to meet people. I can't believe how much the club has grown! I am tremendously impressed and hope that UM students take advantage of this excellent organization! Quotes
Former Miami Ballroom member and performance team member

Quotes I joined Miami Ballroom three years ago. It was the first time in my life doing dance. I still remember that I hesitated for a long time after the first free lesson, should a shy and non-experienced guy like me join this club? Fortunately, as I can say today, I made a correct and smart move. Not only it endowed me my second family and huge happiness, but also it helped me discover a hidden treasure I'd never known before-dancing. Three years ago, if you asked me if I'd like to dance in front of thousands of people, I'd prefer to be murdered rather than go on the stage. Now, performing in front of audience is one of the most exciting part of my life! Quotes
