We remind dancers that they should not come if they have any symptoms or have been exposed to people who have Covid. Masks are recommended, but optional.


We urge dancers to bring their water bottle from home to cut down on single use bottles. There is also a chilled water fountain next to the bathroom to refill your water bottles with chilled water and a cold/hot water dispenser in the entry way to help keep you hydrated.


VivaTango is located at 45 Stockton Street, Princeton New Jersey. We have an off-street parking lot at the venue. The dance floor is in the smaller of the two buildings. We are also easily accessed by rail from NYC or Philly. Just get a ticket to Princeton (not Princeton Junction). You get off the train at Princeton Junction and take a shuttle train to Princeton. The venue is 8 blocks from the Princeton Train Station (0.8 mi.).


VivaTango continues to need help at the end of events to store chairs, tables, lights, and sound system. This task requires staying about 30 minutes after the end. You will be part of a team of 3 persons. This is a great way to get to know some of your fellow dancers. If interested contactSylvie
