An alumnus of the class of 2007 writes, "Tech Squares is the square and round dance club of MIT, founded in 1967. Tech Squares dances high-energy modern Western squares in an "all position" style, with no dress code or couples requirement.
"Tech Squares is well-known for doing difficult and ambitious choreography, and for having an achievement-oriented mindset. The technologically oriented culture of MIT attracts dancers who like learning new things, and enjoy the mentally challenging dancing provided by Modern Western Square Dancing, especially at higher levels.
"At a time when many Modern Western Square Dance clubs are finding that the long learning time for a high degree of proficiency does not attract a sufficient number of newcomers to the activity, Tech Squares thrives on high-proficiency dancers."
