TBDC Youth Sponsorship


Ballroom dance provides lifelong social, intellectual, and physical benefits. TBDC wants to encourage youth who are interested in learning and growing as ballroom dancers. To this end the board has begun a youth member sponsorship fund to enable more young people to join our club and take advantage of member discounts.

If you would like to contribute to this youth sponsorship fund, send Betty a check payable to TBDC and add YOUTH to the memo line.

Her address is:  Betty Franks, PO Box 1447, Saltillo, MS, 38866

Each club membership is $25, and any amount is appreciated.
