The UBC Gala Ball is the oldest DanceSport competition in British Columbia, run entirely by student volunteers. It has evolved from its humble beginnings to currently boast a reputation for showcasing the best of British Columbia’s ballroom dance community. In 1962, the UBC Gala Ball was established by UBC Dance Club student executives as a year-end showcase for their members. Today, the event features over 200 dancers competing in 85 categories, including the BC Open Championships and is still run by dedicated UBC Dance Club student executives and community volunteers.
