Are you a TBA dancer? This year, we're trying something new to help you find a partner. We've made four google forms (one for each style) that you can add your name to or search the responses for a partner.
Once you find a partner, email mitbdt-comp-coord@mit.edu and mitbdt-registrar@mit.edu to register and have your name removed from the spreadsheet. Questions or comments? Email our Competition Coordinator at mitbdt-comp-coord@mit.edu.

Submit a TBA request for:
Standard | Smooth | Latin | Rhythm

Find someone from the list:
