Summer Social Classes

The MIT Ballroom Dance team is proud to sponsor a series summer beginner social classes.  We will be offering these classes in collaboration with the Ballroom Dance Club.  The classes are open to the public.

No dance experience? No problem!  These classes are targeted at complete beginners.

No partner? It doesn’t matter!  We will rotate through partners in the classes.

No cash? Classes are FREE for MIT students with ID, $3 for MIT affiliates and other students with ID, and $5 for general public

Please note that these classes focus on learning fun social figures.  Our technique-based competitive training starts in the fall!  Sala is on the 2nd floor of the student center, W20-407 is on the 4th floor of the student center, lobby 13 is on the 1st floor of building 13, Morss Hall is the 1st floor of Walker Memorial, and 34-3xx is the 3rd floor of Building 34.
