Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

I always hear of BYU's Ballroom Dance Team winning national collegiate competitions. What colleges are typically runner ups? Or who is the next best ball room dance college?

- Footloose

A: Dear Footloose (my grandma was in that movie),

Here's the deal on ballroom competition. BYU's team is actually unique in that we present a unified front, and teams that represent the school. In most cases, couples compete for themselves individually, sometimes with backing organizations (such as colleges), sometimes without. More often it's the latter, so it's hard to say which school would be "second best." UVSC has a team, BYU-I does as well, various colleges throughout the country have teams, but nothing like BYU.
