Not only are balls fun, but ballroom dance is an inherently Christian activity, and we believe our parishes should be fostering and supporting excellent dancing.
However, most parishioners and parish leadership know very little about dance or ballroom etiquette, and as a result many churches hold "dances" that are anything but a dance. They are filled with meaningless movement and a lack of communication. We would go so far as to say such dances are un-Christian.
The CCBF provides beginner level lessons leading up to the ball. We focus on waltz, foxtrot, Viennese waltz and polka, all elegant dances, but also lively and fun! The pre-dance lessons are extremely important! It is impossible to have a dance unless a significant portion of your attendees know some dance and ball etiquette.

To Your Parish
Why You ShouldHave a Ball!
Restore a Sense of Sacredness to the Culture
Our dances have the same sense of fun that a regular church dance has, but in addition they have a sense of beauty and wonder, Our dances strive to be as beautiful as the architecture of the finest churches.
Dance, when done properly, is a natural community builder, bringing together people who otherwise might never meet. Combined dance events can help parishes work better together and share resources more efficiently.
Teach the Faith
Theology of Dance is about understanding the Christian faith using ballroom dance. In learning to dance well, we set the groundwork for understanding our Dance with Jesus in the music of the Holy Spirit.
