The Ballroom Dance Preservation Society is a 501 (c )(3) dedicated to preserving Ballroom Dancing through Events and Education

The Ballroom Dance Preservation Society (BDPS) was formed in May of 2017 with a mission to preserve Ballroom Dancing for future generations through education and events while advocating the many physical, mental and social benefits that ballroom dancing can bring. Those who enjoy ballroom dancing have opportunities for more dancing while sharing the joy with those who may not otherwise experience dancing, and for all to gain the increased sense of purpose and positive outlook on life that dancing can bring.

We will introduce Ballroom Dancing to seniors, children, and those coping with chronic conditions and disabilities such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimers, CTE, and cardiovascular conditions. Ballroom Dancing has demonstrated a positive impact on these conditions as well as providing a weight bearing activity that builds bone density, can help in maintaining a healthy weight and improve balance. Ballroom Dancing introduces you to a sea of new people with a common interest and can help overcome the devastating effects that loneliness can bring.

We are partnering with the Starduster Big Band to bring Big Band Ballroom Dance events to the area and hope to make Myrtle Beach a destination city for Ballroom Dancing. The first of such events is in the works so check our website for this and other events in the area.
