Youth Ballroom Dance Camp

Registration Announcement

To keep the gender enrollments equal for the Youth Ballroom Dance Camp, we are now requiring all FEMALE participants to sign up with a male registrant (one female with one male). This does not mean both will be partners throughout the camp. Partners vary with classes and levels. It is to help keep the numbers equal to ensure a better camp experience for the participants. MALE participants can still register as single participants. If we reach a point where the number of males outnumbers the females, we will open up single participant enrollment to females again.

GIRLS: Please have information on both yourself and your male registrant ready at the time of registration. If your male registrant drops from the camp, you will also be dropped.

For those girls who are not able to find a male registrant, we have a waiting list. As openings become available in the camp, we will call those girls on the list in the order in which they were placed on it.

To register with your male registrant, please call the Registration Office at 801–422–8925. To get on the waiting list, please call 801–422–7589 or come to 169 Harman Continuing Education Building (see below for more details and available registration times).
