​Thank you for your interest in the Staten Island Ballroom Dancers Inc. We are a private social club dedicated to promote and stimulate interest in ballroom dancing, and we welcome couples who share our passion for all of those wonderful, classic dances that at times seem forgotten.


As prospective members, we would like to make you aware of some membership requirements:

  • Annual dues - currently $125 per couple - must be paid by January 31st.
  • Members (at least one partner) must attend a minimum of three monthly business meetings per year.
  • Members are expected to host dinner dances and Thursday evening socials.
  • Member fees are $3.00 per person for the weekly socials and monthly meetings.
  • Members are invited to volunteer and participate in all club activities.
  • Note: There are no Thursday evening socials or business meetings in July or August.


Membership is not suitable for novice dancers. Applicants should be competent in at least four ballroom dances (for example: Waltz, Cha-Cha, Foxtrot, Rumba, etc) and demonstrate a knowledge of floor craft (moving around the floor in the right direction and avoiding other couples).


Prospective members may attend socials and dances only at the invitation of their sponsors. (Non-member fees to attend socials are $3.00 per person.)


After your application has been received, your dancing proficiency will be examined by the Examining Committee and submitted to the Executive Board for approval.


We look forward to seeing you at our socials or dinners and hope that you find our club to be an enjoyable and satisfying experience.
