GAPSA Collaboration

Thanks to funding from GAPSA Student Life, lessons are free for Penn Graduate and Professional students! (Please bring your graduate student ID) Spots are limited and will be given out on a first-come, first-serve basis.


Please wear shoes you can dance in (boots and sneakers are discouraged) and comfortable clothing. Those with long hair may wish to bring a hair tie in case it gets in the way. As all our dances are partner dances, remember that you will be in close vicinity with other students - please be considerate with your grooming and hygiene.
