If you are an RPI student, $60 grants you access to all Ballroom/Latin lessons per semester or $100 for the whole year. The membership fee is $85 for non-RPI students ($150 per year). Joining the Ballroom Team is an additional fee of $45 per semester. (With 3 Ballroom & Latin Lessons available each week, membership opens you up to a total of 30 lessons each semester, so you definitely get your money's worth!)
Please note that dues are non-refundable.
Fall 2023 is finally here! RPI Ballroom will be holding our semesterly Intro Dance on Friday, September 8th in the McNeil room of the Student Union at 7pm. We hope to start Club lessons Tuesday, September 5th at 6pm in the and Team lessons on Thursday, September 7th at 6pm. Both lessons will be held in our newly re-opened studio in the basement of Academy Hall!
We restart our lesson tracks every semester, Fall and Spring, so make sure to keep us in mind for the future!
Although we do not recommend missing lessons, there is no long-term penalty if you miss one or two. Our instructors frequently review learned material, building on past classes, so you will be able to pick it up then.
Certainly not! You can still join any of our groups without knowing a thing. You only need an interest. In fact, most people who join us every semester have never danced before.
Not at all! We rotate partners throughout lessons, so you will dance with many people.
Lessons are structured group classes taught by an instructor, while practices are unstructured informal times meant to work on lesson material.
Nope, just come with comfortable clothing and shoes. Many in the Ballroom/Latin and Argentine Tango tracks dance with their socks on, while soft-soled sneakers like Converses are popular in the Lindy Hop track. If you have ballroom dance shoes, however, feel free to wear them!
As of right now, RPI is not allowing community members. However, we are hopeful that in the future we will be able to welcome back everyone.
We have more information on donating to club on our donation page.
