The Desert Challenge Dancesport Foundation establishes Dancesport programs and teams at universities, colleges, high schools, and middle schools. We train students in competitive ballroom dancing for couples and in competitive formation dancing. In addition, we assist them in entering Dancesport competitions at appropriate levels so that they may gauge their progress. The dancers also perform at their respective schools and throughout the Las Vegas Valley.
