Welcome to the Ballroom (Japanese: ボールルームへようこそ, Hepburn: Bōrurūmu e Yōkoso) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Tomo Takeuchi. It tells the prototypical story of an aimless Japanese youth named Tatara Fujita, who, after a chance encounter, is plunged into the world of competitive dancing. The series is licensed in North America by Kodansha Comics. An anime television series adaptation by Production I.G premiered on July 8, 2017, with Amazon Video exclusively streaming the series worldwide.
Third-year middle school student Tatara Fujita is a guy who has no plans for his future or dreams, but tries to find something he can pursue with his whole life. With him being bullied and extorted, he is saved from delinquents by a man named Kaname Sengoku, a motorcycle-riding dance instructor. Tatara is entered into the Ogasawara Dance Studio in which he is shown the ropes of the world of Competitive Ballroom Dancing.
The manga began serialization by Tomo Takeuchi in Kodansha's Monthly Shōnen Magazine in the December 2011 issue. The series went on hiatus in February 2016 due to the author's poor health, but returned in the February 2017 issue. The series went on another hiatus for two months from December 2017 due to the author's health, however, did not return during the expected timeframe, and was instead expected to return in April 2018, but due to further health issues, the manga remained on hiatus until further notice. On May 13, 2019, it was announced that Takeuchi was preparing to resume working on the manga, later announcing in the July 2019 issue of Monthly Shōnen Magazine that the series would return on July 5, 2019. In the February 2020 issue of Monthly Shōnen Magazine published on January 6, 2020, it was announced the series would be on an indefinite hiatus due to Takeuchi's continued decline in health.
On March 21, 2016, Kodansha Comics announced that it has licensed the manga in English. As of June 23, 2017, nine volumes have been released.

|Tatara Fujita is a third year in middle school student with no plans for his future. As he heads home after being scolded by his teacher about having no future plans, he spots his crush Shizuku Hanaoka walking to a dance studio. Tatara heads towards the studio, but is attacked by bullies. A man on a motorcycle, Kaname Sengoku, walks up to and intimidates them, and forces Tatara to enter the dance studio with him. After finding out that Shizuku was a ballroom dancer, Tatara tries to dance with her but runs away after realising that he was nothing like Shizuku. Tatara returns to the dance studio the next day after viewing a pre-recorded dance competition featuring Kaname, but turns down the offer to join the dance studio due to financial issues. Kaname and Tamaki Tsuburaya decide to allow Tatara to make delayed payments after realising he had the confidence and motivation to become a professional dancer. Kaname decides to teach Tatara the Box, thinking he would pass out after twenty minutes, but Tatara ends up practising the Box for the entire night.|
