Tickets are $20 for Stanford citizens (please bring SUID), $35 for all others. T-shirts are $10, so be sure to bring a few extra credits to the event, so you can get your commemorative Big Dance 2012 shirt.


Tickets will be on sale in White Plaza from 11:00AM to 1:00PM, May 7-11 and will also be sold in Stanford social dance classes in the week prior to the dance. A limited number of tickets may be available at the door, though Big Dance typically sells out before the night of the dance.

Be sure to pick up your collectible "Dancing with the Star Wars" ticket! The front, in matte black to represent the Dark Side is topped by silhouettes of Darth Vader, Princess Leia and R2-D2 accompanying a dancing couple. The ticket back, representing the Light Side in white, features one of six classic Star Wars quotes. Collect them all!

(The number of tickets is limited because the capacity of Roble Gym, as set by the fire marshal, is 299 persons. Big Dance is legally required to keep the occupancy below 300.)

1:00 AM Sales

For those wishing to attend the dance starting from 1:00 AM onward, reduced-price tickets will be available at the door as space becomes available. The reduced price ticket will be half the price of a regular ticket. (The reduced-price ticket is offered in an effort to accommodate those who could not get a full-price ticket before they sold out and those who have another engagement that prevents them from attending Big Dance during its live entertainment portion.)
