The classes and guided practice are free for undergraduate students, $5 for graduate students, and $10 for post docs and university affiliates. No partner or experience necessary to attend.

Please check the calendar for up to date information on class location and timing. Classes are generally held in the Friend Center starting at 7PM, but occasionally are moved due to scheduling conflicts.

7pm: Introduction to Tango

Curious about tango? Want to polish your fundamentals? This is the class for you! This class will introduce all the building blocks of tango to get you started dancing socially. We will focus on connection, foundational steps and structures, musicality, and collaborative improvisation in a gender-neutral, role-agnostic setting. No partner or experience necessary. Drop-ins are welcome at ANY point in the semester. Don’t worry if you miss a week! We will cycle through the same material roughly every 6 weeks.

Class lasts for 1 hour followed by 30 minutes of practice to perfect what you learned.

8:30pm: Tools For the Social Dance Floor

This is an all levels class on a variety of topics useful for beginning to advanced dancers alike. Class topics will often be a bit more advanced than the 7pm class, but we encourage dancers of all levels to stay. This class will often elaborate on concepts from the previous class, so we recommend you come to both classes.

Open practice until 10:30PM following the class
