About Team Dancers


Team Dancers purpose is to promote ballroom dancing through performance. We were founded in 1989 by the local chapter of the organization then called “United States Amateur Ballroom Dancers Association” (USABDA) now called USA Dance, Inc. Since then, the team has had two coaches and hundreds of members. Our current coach, Monique Hrouda, has been leading us in fun and exciting choreography since 1997. We perform and compete throughout the Pacific Northwest and Canada, and as far away as Hawaii, in a wide variety of ballroom dances.

The purpose of the USA Dance Seattle Team Dancers

Team Dancers welcomes dancers of all ages, backgrounds, and levels of experience to come and enjoy a unique dance opportunity that challenges and improves dance and performance skills with the expertise of our professional coach. The team works together to learn choreography and develop original dance routines for both competition and performance. We participate in a variety of local and regional dance events, and also perform at corporate functions, parties, fundraisers, or other entertainment venues.

Event Performances


TEAM DANCERS LOVE TO PERFORM! Consider us for corporate gatherings, charity events, parties, or weddings. We offer performances that may be tailored for specific events or special occasions of any size. As a 501c(3) non-profit organization, we do request a donation to perform at public events. Donations help to offset team expenses such as coaching and costumes. Based on the complexity and duration of the performance you would like at your event, the suggested donation ranges from $100 to $300. Requests for routines that are tailored for a specific theme require additional team practice, and coaching, and therefore a higher donation may be appropriate. Please contact our Team President, Maryann Watkins to discuss specifics regarding an appropriate donation for your event.
