Congratulations to all the Brooklyn DanceSport Club competitors representing New York and BDSC at the 2013 Ohio Star Ball!


The Ohio Star Ball began as a one day showcase 35 years ago, under the direction of Sam Sodano. With equal amounts of creativity, courage and perseverance, Sam has developed this Championship into the largest Pro/Am competition, not only in North America, but in the world today. Held in November in Columbus, Ohio at the Hyatt Regency and televised on PBS, the Ohio Star Ball hosts several national championship events.
