Dance Punch Card (NEW)
Pay by credit card or cash at the cashiers window or at the dance.
Due to Inflation, the price for all future weekly dances has increased to $2 with I-card and $3 without. They have been $1 for years and years, so unfortunately it is time to increase the price....
If you're an avid dancer, we are now offering a $15 punch card good for 15 weekly dances, including Party in the Hart (aka 15 dances for $15). We will be selling them at the ticket office at the beginning of the semester as well as at the following link:
