Year-End Report 2009

(as reported to the Student Activities office)

The Rice Social Dance Society holds three weekly dance classes – Ballroom, Swing, and Tango – taught by volunteer teachers from the Houston community. In the fall, RSDS hosted our second annual ballroom dancing competition, Dances with Owls. This competition invites dancers from nearby universities and community members to participate alongside our own members. RSDS also co-sponsored (with the Houston Swing Dance Society) the Harvest Moon Ball during Parent’s Weekend. The Harvest Moon Ball is a swing social with live music. In the early spring, RSDS hosted the four-day Houston Tango Festival, which provides a variety of Argentine tango workshops and evening dances. Finally, at the end of the spring semester, RSDS organized the Jazz Soiree, a social event for Rice students and other community members with live music provided by the Rice Jazz Ensemble.
