We're celebrating 50 years of Ballroom Dancing in Winnipeg and you're invited to our party!

In 2020, Westview Dance Club will be celebrating its 50th Anniversary. Westview Dance Club is the oldest dance club in Winnipeg and one of the longest running clubs in Western Canada. It was founded in 1970 by a small group of people with a common interest in ballroom dancing. The first class was held in a local St. James-Assiniboia Church in the spring of 1970, with 13 couples, with four more couples joining in the fall.
From that humble beginning, Westview Dance Club has since seen more than 1,000 members over its 50 years. Many members have been in the club for 20 years or more. Some original members are still Associate or Lifetime Members within the club.
