Two announcements:

First, Sam & I will be teaching swing dance for the tango club next Monday (April 22nd) at 7pm in the Friend Center Convocation Room! This is a great opportunity to learn more tango & swing dance with a great group of dancers. (Also, friendly reminder that tango club’s lessons are free for undergrads, $5 for grads, and $10 for community members!) For more information, go to https://www.princetontangoclub.com/event-calendar/

Second, several of our members (including me!) are planning to attend Phila-bal-phia on Saturday, May 18th. This is a Balboa workshop for all learning levels, so if you’re a fan of balboa (or just bal-curious!) this will be a great opportunity to learn a really fun dance style. For more information and registration links, go to https://www.philabalphia.com/. If you want to carpool with us, reach out to psdc@princeton.edu and we can coordinate rides together!

Looking forward to dancing with you – there’s so many new things to try, and I encourage you to try as many as you can! 🙂

In addition to the new progressive lesson that’s starting, note that we’re switching to a new & improved schedule for our meetings. Instead of a longer social dance, we’re trying out shorter practice sessions so that folks get a chance to try the skills they’ve learned on the dance floor!

Swing Dance and TANGO This Thursday (3/21) @ 7pm in NGC Common Room

Hi everyone! This week, we’re in the NGC Common Room on Thursday (3/21) starting at 7 p.m. This is a really special week: we’re having guest teachers from the Tango Club teach us a new style of dance. Let’s learn the Argentine tango together! Here’s the full schedule:

7:00-7:10 — Check-in (don’t forget your mask!)

7:10-8:15 — Beginner Tango lesson & practice with Sean and Jackie

8:15-9:00 — Beginner Swing lesson with Rob & Zoë

9:00-10:00 — Social Dance DJ’ed by Zoë

I’ve been dancing tango and learning from Sean and Jackie for a few months now, and I’ve found that while they are different dances, a lot of the core skills of partner dancing are very much the same across styles. This is a great way to learn something new from some really great teachers while building skills that will help *all* your dancing, not just swing!

As always, please do not attend if you feel sick or have recently tested positive for COVID-19. Please bring a mask and wear it for the duration of the evening. Thank you!
