About Us

 

Howdy!

The Aggie Wranglers is an exhibition country and western dance team founded in 1984 and run solely by Texas A&M students. Through our unique polka and jitterbug routines, we share our passion for dancing and love for Texas A&M with as many people as we can.  We perform anywhere and everywhere, all around the city, state, nation and world absolutely free of charge.  For more information on having us perform at your event, click on the performance request tab at the top of the page. When we are not performing, we share our dancing knowledge with the community through our Fightin’ Texas Aggie Wrangler Dance Lessons.

What Do We Do?

The Aggie Wranglers travel all across Texas, the United States, and the world performing choreographed, high-speed polka routines and our internationally famous Aggie-style jitterbug. We have been honored with personal invitations by President George Bush to perform in Washington DC, the opening of the Qatar branch of Texas A&M University in the Middle East, the christening of the USS Texas nuclear submarine in Virginia, the 750th Anniversary of Gravelotte, Germany, the Retailing Hall of Fame in New York City, the Steamboat Springs MusicFest, Walt Disney World in Orlando, and the Houston Texans halftime show.

Each year, the Aggie Wranglers teach approximately 2,000 students, faculty, staff, and community members how to polka, two-step, waltz, and jitterbug through our dance lessons offered in the spring, summer, and fall semesters every year.
