Mustang Ball brings hundreds of dancers to Cal Poly's Chumash Auditorium

Posted: Updated:
 More than 500 people threw on their dancing shoes for this weekend's Mustang Ball at Cal Poly.

The 8th annual Ballroom Dance Competition took over Chumash Auditorium on Saturday.

Dancers from all over the state traveled to San Luis Obispo to compete. There were categories for all ages and skill levels, and dancers could perform many different styles of dance as well.

"They (the judges) look for what moves you're doing, how well you present the move technically, and also just how well you're executing the dance overall," Cal Poly Ballroom Club member Julia Demoor said, "If it's a waltz, you want to have a lot of grace and poise. If it's a cha cha, you want to be more fun and flirty."

Professional ballroom dancers were also there to perform.

Organizers of the event hope to expose more people to the ballroom dancing culture.
