History

For the past 10 years, Guam dance companies and organizations have grown significantly. The ballroom society events were hosted by local instructors such as Sonny Tolentino’s “Let’s Dance,” David Peele Jr. “Guam Dance”, and Apaul Quilantang’s “University of Guam Dance Organization” and “Guam Entertainment Society.” These businesses and organization promoted dance groups such as Guam Latin Dance Group 2014, UOG Dance Group and Guam Latin Dance 2017. Most of the Guam local dance companies individually promoted their concerts.
