2012 Dance Concert

MITBDT is proud to announce its second Dance Concert, an evening dedicated to showcasing ballroom!

When: September 15, 2012, 8:00 pm

Where: Kresge Auditorium.

On Saturday the evening of September 15th, MIT’s Ballroom Dance Team will be performing its second annual Fall Dance Concert! The result of a collaborative effort between team members and coaches, the Fall Dance Concert is not only an opportunity for team members to share their talent and passion from dance with the community but also an opportunity to perform in a different fashion from competitive ballroom dancing. Featuring a variety of group and solo numbers in varying styles of ballroom dance, it will be a night to remember and a perfect way to kick of the 2012-2013 dancing season!

Please note that the Kresge parking lot on campus is reserved from 5PM-9PM for Dance Concert parking! (You will not be towed if your car is parked past 9PM and you will still be able to exit the lot.)
