Sport Clubs

Originally established over 30 years ago with a limited number of clubs, the Ithaca College Sport Club program has undergone a significant expansion since that time and currently consists of 38 clubs in the categories of competitive, instructional, performance and recreational sports.

Placed under the guidance of the Office of Recreational Sports in fall 2001, the sport club program is currently based out of the Ithaca College Fitness Center and continues to expand at a rapid rate as clubs are added as interest for them increases.

Voluntarily organized by students, sport clubs exist for the purpose of furthering a common interest in a physical activity through competition, instruction, participation, or performance. Students elect their own officers, draft their own constitution, request facility space, get approval for and make travel arrangements, schedule contests with other teams, develop contracts with officials and artists, fund raise and manage their budget.

About Ballroom Dance Team/Club!


Formed in early 2006, Ithaca College Ballroom Dance has grown into a thriving organization here on campus. We strive to introduce students to the world of Ballroom and Latin Dance as well as DanceSport Competitions. We provide instruction for beginner and intermediate level dancers.

The dances we cover include:
• Waltz
• Tango
• Foxtrot
• Quickstep
• Viennese Waltz
• Cha-Cha
• Rumba
• Jive
• Swing
• Samba
• And more!

The club meets on a weekly basis and is free and is open to the entire IC community. No experience required! We only ask that you wear socks and comfortable clothes.

Our competitive team meets additional times during the week to review and teach advanced moves to train our dancers to place during competitions. We compete all across the Northeast and sponsor certain competitions throughout the year.  To join the team, we also ask all newcomers to invest in a pair of ballroom dance shoes and join with a partner.

For any questions, comments, or concerns please e-mail us at or contact Audrey Baron at

We look forward to dancing with you!
