Team Bio

The Michigan Ballroom Dance Team was originally founded in the fall of 1997 to provide students with an opportunity to compete in intercollegiate ballroom dancing competitions. Since that time, it has transformed into a social organization, a competitive team, and an organization that serves the community.

The team currently has around 200 active members, and has won the National Championship at the Ohio Star Ball (National Collegiate Championships) for 10 consecutive years: 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014.

We owe our success to Steve and Susan McFerran (our coaches), Jayme Crabtree (providers of practice space), and the countless team members who have made sacrifices for the Ballroom Dance Team at the University of Michigan.

The Ballroom Dance Team is a separate entity from the Ballroom Dance Club, which can be found here.
