Welcome to
Ballroom Dancing 4 A Better U

Ballroom Dancing for a Better U is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is devoted to sharing the idea that ballroom dancing can bring important positive changes in the lives of every individual.

There is growing evidence that shows that stimulating one’s mind by dancing can ward off Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia, much as physical exercise can keep the body fit.  Dancing also increases cognitive acuity at all ages.

Our goal is for everyone to have the opportunity of benefitting from ballroom dancing regardless of age, health limitations or economic status. The proven advantages of dance are well documented and the charity was established specifically to cater to different aspects of the dance needs of each individual. We work with physically challenged children, adults with disabilities, seniors and those enduring cognitive impairment.

Penn Cares

Ballroom Dancing For A Better U recently got a grant through Penn Cares at University of Penn to help continue our work. Here is the video they made for us. You can find the video on their channel by clicking HERE

Our Mission

Help bring the joy of dance to special needs residents and our community!

Why Ballroom Dancing?

Since ballroom dancing is a communal activity, it has positive effects on your mental health. Studies back up what is common knowledge: Being around other people builds up your social ties, and socializing contributes to a positive outlook as well as a higher sense of self-confidence. Joining a ballroom dance class is one such way to accomplish this.
