Beginner Dance Camp 2012

Are you an MIT or Wellesley student, staff member, alumnus or affiliate?  Interested in learning more about our award-winning team?  Check out Dance Camp: a ballroom crash-course aimed at complete beginners.  If you are an MIT or Wellesley student or affiliate, come and check us out!

No partner is necessary.  No experience is necessary.   No registration is necessary.  These classes are free, and we’ll even feed you!   We want to keep a fun and open environment.  Just come check us out to see if the team is right for you.  You don’t need to bring anything.  You aren’t making any commitment to the team by coming. Just come get some free food and 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 – but don’t worry!  You will be dancing with an experienced team member and you will be competing in teams of multiple couples.  It’s fun!
