MIT had a wonderful and vibrant dance program that many of us benefited from and  enjoyed tremendously. The MITCNC launched a program to revive that spirit of musicality, movement, joy and friendship that illuminated the experience of numerous alums last October.

If dance is a part of your life, or, if it was so when you were at MIT, but you have now lost it, or, you have always wanted to dance but never got to it, we want to hear from you.

On February 4, we are launching our second 6-week Argentine Tango series. We will have Argentine Tango Foundations I and Argentine Tango Foundations II this time. You are welcome to sign up for one or both series.

Over time, it is our intent to grow the program to include many more dances from Waltz, Foxtrot, Swing, Salsa and more. 

With this vision, we have launched the MIT Dancers LinkedIn group which we recommend you join. We would like to dialog with you there and understand your needs and desires vis-a-vis dance (dance forms, level, objective, aspiration, location), whether or not you are attending the launch series. This is also the place to ask questions about the launch series and other future events. 

Finally, we are looking for volunteers to build the MITCNC dance program. Please let us know in the MIT Dancers LinkedIn Group if you’re interested in volunteering.
