*MIT affiliates (MIT student, staff/faculty, and alumni; and Wellesley students) only; we will be checking ID at the door*

No partner is necessary. No experience is necessary. No registration is necessary. These classes are free! You don’t need to bring anything. You aren’t making any commitment to the team by coming. Just come learn some new moves!

The classes are taught by professional dance instructors. You don’t need to attend them all – just come to the ones that fit your schedule. Everyday clothes are fine, but it’s best to avoid wearing sandals. After each class, there will be performances by team members. We will also tell you everything you need to know about the team.

On Saturday there is a team match. This is an event where you will be placed in one of two teams and matched up with one of our experienced team members with whom you will train for a mini competition against other prospective team members. Almost everyone who had done this in the past had a great time so you should check it out!
