With each new school year, Holy Cross Ballroom welcomes a new group of members; this fall we were thrilled to be joined by an exceptional group of fun people and talented dancers alike. After a semester together, we’re both lucky and grateful to consider them part of our ballroom family! Over the past few months, HCBDT has had the pleasure of taking these new dancers along to their first ballroom competitions as well as several others, having a “Save Ferris” themed social, performing a routine at DESI’s annual Diwali Festival Show, and more. We closed the semester with some of our favorite holiday traditions: swinging in Kimball to “All I Want for Christmas is You” during Christmas dinner, attending the tree lighting together, and our annual Dancing with the Stars event, which includes competition between our dancers and their partners, campus stars, and showcases from the rest of the team! While we celebrate the holidays, the New Year, and another semester together, HCBDT has much to look forward to, as approaching quickly are Holy Cross’ Dance Marathon, our own Crusader Classic Ballroom Competition, and many spring competitions and performances. Happy 2016– we can’t wait to get back to campus and see where this one takes us!
