CCBCD Spring Concert!

The Claremont Colleges Ballroom Dance Company is having its annual Spring concert Do You Believe in Magic?  this weekend!

You guys, please come support all of our hard work throughout the year in this spectacular, magical event!

It takes place in Big Bridges Auditorium at Pomona on the following dates:

Friday, April 30: 7 PM

Saturday, May 1: 7 PM

Sunday, May 2: 11 AM

You are guaranteed a great time, it will take your minds off finals and stress for a little bit, and it is a great way to see what all of us ballroom people have been up to.  Tickets are generally $15 but we have received subsidies that allow us to sell them for only $5 to students ( $10 for faculty)! You can buy your ticket from me during class or contatct me at for more info. A big part of the money we collect will go towards purchasing more costumes, which are very very expensive (anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars for one).

This is a really exciting event for me personally since I will be performing 4 routines. This is a big jump from last semester when I only had 1 so I am both thrilled and a bit nervous. I’m in the lindy hop, polka, salsa and paso doble routines and all of them are absolutely amazing! I love the spirit of our team, how organized we are and how much we achieve every year. Basically, dancing makes me feel alive 🙂

Here’s a little scoop of one of our campus team routines, just to get you guys a bit excited:
