Please make your check payable to USA DANCE and place it in the mail immediately to Jan Crisostomo 10942 Reading Road, Jacksonville, Florida 32257. Also, please call Jan (904) 616-6541 to let her know that you plan on coming to the dance so we get a running count of how many to expect and so she knows to look for your check in the mail.

We have chosen a beautiful venue for this event:

The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd

Please go to their website at gsjax.com to view the beautiful venue of Worsham Hall. The hall has an attached courtyard for our enjoyment, as well. Large parking lot on property with lots of light for our safety.

Ladies, now is the time to make your dance host reservations! We have three hosts reserved at this moment, so the sooner we receive your reservations the sooner we will know if we need to hire more professionals. Please contact Jan at 904 616-6541 via text message (preferably) or you can call her or message her on facebook to set up spots. You may reserve up to three spots. You may include your payment for hosts with your check for your tickets.

This gala is our time to celebrate together all the wonderful memories we have shared throughout 2016 and our way of also saying thank you for being a part of the Northstar Chapter and supporting it during this past year. It's also wonderful way to end the year...sharing an evening with your precious ballroom dance friends and getting to be on the ballroom floor for a lovely evening together.

We look forward to hearing from you and getting to share this special night together...wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Welcome to the home page of the North Star Jacksonville Chapter #6058 of USA Dance. For those of you who are unfamiliar with USA Dance, we are a non-profit national organization that encourages self-expression through ballroom dancing, socially as well as competitively. We believe that our focus on ballroom dancing contributes to the mental and physical aspects of well-being, in short, it's good for your body, heart, mind and spirit!

USA Dance chapters create dance opportunities for local citizens by organizing affordable social dances, dance lessons and workshops. Chapter members often present dance education and live demonstrations in nursing homes, retirement homes, hospitals, schools, shopping malls, and other public places, while striving to educate the public regarding the health and social benefits of ballroom dancing.

USA Dance is the nation-wide organization of competitive, college, and social Amateur Ballroom Dancers in the United States. USA Dance functions as the governing body in the USA for amateur ballroom dancing (also known as Dancesport). The goal of each chapter is to serve the national mission on a grassroots level, as a leader and a motivation for ballroom dance activities in the community, colleges and schools.
