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 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 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. The venue is easily accessed by rail from NYC and 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.).
