USA Dance (Smith Mountain Lake) Chapter #6042

About Us

Our mission is to improve the quality and the quantity of ballroom dancing in the United States.

Welcome to our chapter, Smith Mountain Lake! We are a non-profit organization. USA Dance Chapters reach out to the community to promote dancing in a variety of ways including social dances with a group lesson prior to the dance taught by local teachers, public demonstrations, serving as an information resource about ballroom and more. USA Dance is dedicated to helping build ballroom dancing opportunities in every community nationwide!


We are still supporting Ballroom dance lessons at New London Ruritan 2nd Friday and 3rd Saturday monthly. Contact Jose & Danya from New City Dance Space 434-251-4560 to schedule your date and time!

The Smith Mountain Lake USA Dance Chapter 6042 hosts monthly dances the second Friday of the month. The lesson is from 7:30-8:30 and social dancing follows until 10:30. Please come show your support of dancing by attending our events! Each dance is preceded by a 1 hour lesson by a professional dancer. If you are interested in private lessons before any of the events, please email us on the contact page and we will provide resources for you.

The New London Ruritan Dance Hall is a large facility with a comfortable wooden floor. Overhead fans circulate the air to keep you comfy while dancing. Wear comfortable shoes and clothing. We do have some themed dances which encourage you to rummage through your closet for that unique article of clothing! Dress in layers!

We do have some unpredictable weather and in the event we need to cancel a dance, please check your email or our facebook page. Make sure you are on our email mailing as well!


Our Music:

We play mostly strict tempo music striking a blend of contemporary and classic dance tunes.  We have guest DJs from time to time, check in periodically and see who is mixing the music!
