Dear Athletes, Fans, Officials, Vendors and Sponsors:
On behalf of USA Dance and the Nationals Management Team, I welcome you to our website for the 2016 USA Dance National DanceSport Championships. The championships will take place April 1-3, 2016, in Baltimore, Maryland. All of us involved hope you will join us in creating an exciting weekend full of excitement and lasting memories.
The 2016 USA Dance National DanceSport Championships will occur at our home in Baltimore, the Marriott Renaissance Harborplace Hotel. The Renaissance is a fabulous AAA 4-Diamond hotel with a spectacular view of and access to Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.
Here you will watch the very best in dancing from Pre-Teens to Senior III, across all disciplines, from all parts of the USA, as they compete for the coveted title: United States National DanceSport Champions. And for some, the opportunity to represent the USA in the 2016 World DanceSport Federation Standard, Latin, and 10-Dance World Championships. Choosing the right couples to represent America requires everyone’s help, both by dancing at your very best and also by cheering as loud as possible to indicate which couple you think is the best. So make plans now to attend!
When you’re not watching the dancing or spectating and cheering on your friends, you’ll be just across the street from the Baltimore Harbor with its boat rides, and the aquarium. The Hard Rock Cafe is a few steps away, and many unique stores and eateries make the Baltimore Harbor a ‘destination’ spot. Plus, let’s not forget that right outside the door will be some of the finest restaurants in the area. In fact, there’s so much to do in the area — and with Washington, DC only 40 minutes away — we recommend that you extend your stay and enjoy the many sights that Baltimore has to offer!
All the information you need to plan your Nationals dance vacation is available on this web site. If by chance there is something missing or you have further questions, please do not hesitate to phone, fax, or send e-mail. Please keep coming back to our site over the next few months as we keep posting the latest information.
We look forward to seeing you in March!
