Request a performance here
No. Upon submission, performance requests are brought to the team, and each member fills out their availability for the request. If there are at least three couples available for your performance, your request will be confirmed via email.
We do our very best to work with each performance request, regardless of submission; however, it is preferable that requests are made at least 3 months in advance. When performance requests are submitted with ample time before the event date, team members are offered the opportunity to ensure that they will be available. Ideally, this in turn creates the chance that more couples will be able to make your performance.
Absolutely not. We have danced in front of audiences as small as 10 and as large as 10,000 for no cost to the requester. In hopes of continuing to offer performances free of charge, we gladly accept and appreciate donations which assist with associated costs of operating and traveling as an organization. If you are considering making a tax-deductible donation to the team, please visit our donations page here.
In an effort to maintain the safety and image of the team, a space suitable to warm up in, such as a separate room with 12′ ceilings or an adjacent building, is greatly appreciated for the Aggie Wranglers to effectively prepare to perform at your event.
Our lessons cost $60 per couple for all four weeks. This equates to about $5 per person per hour of instruction.
Lessons are once a week for an hour and a half with each session of lessons lasting for four weeks.
You can sign up for lessons without having a partner, but you must have a partner by the time lessons start. If you do sign up without a definite partner and cannot find one by the time your lessons start, we cannot refund your money.
Check out our Partner Search Database for help finding a partner. For security reasons, you are required to have a current TAMU NetID and password to access the database.
Of course not! Our classes are offered to everyone and anyone regardless of whether you are enrolled at Texas A&M or not.
Yes. You will need to bring a substitute partner, however. While they will not be required to pay anything extra, they will need to fill out a liability waiver when they arrive for the lesson. If a substitute cannot be found, you are still welcome to come and watch.
Yes, you are more than welcome to come 30 minutes before or stay 30 minutes after your given lesson time to catch up from the previous week. However, should you or your partner be absent the final week, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. It is not guaranteed that a team member will be available to assist once a class has ended.
We teach a variety of classes for people of all different skill levels. Participants should be aware that all moves are “challenge by choice” and are not required should you feel uncomfortable to do so.
- Country and Western 1 teaches the basic two step, polka, waltz, and the turns associated with each step.
- Country and Western 2 is for those who are more comfortable with their polka. Basic moves such as Donna, pretzel, and box are taught to a polka step.
- Jitterbug 1 teaches basic jitterbug floor moves such as Donna and pretzel, as well as several stunts including Jessie flip, floor sweep, and can opener.
- Jitterbug 2 is for those who are interested in more of our “High Flyin’ Death Defyin’” moves. The primary focus of this class is to teach lifts which will be almost entirely off the ground. There are relatively few floor moves. Jitterbug will include Around the World, Reisha, Cliffhanger, Michelle, and several others.
If the move is one that is taught in public lessons – yes! Unfortunately, we also have a set of team-only moves that we are unable to teach to the public due to safety precautions. We practice long and hard to ensure the safety of our team members as well as those who take our lessons!
Online signups start about a month in advance of the lessons start date. If you want to ensure that you will get a spot in a certain class on a certain day, reserve your spot as soon as possible. Our classes are filled on a first come first serve basis and there are a limited number of spots within each class. Be sure to follow the Aggie Wranglers on Facebook and Instagram for up-to-date information on when lessons signups are available.
Be sure to always wear appropriate clothing to dance in; be mindful of skirts and low-cut shirts. Boots are not required, but closed toed shoes are. Secondly, we ask that you bring your liability waiver printed and completed on the first day of lessons to ensure that the lesson starts promptly.
This is handled on a case by case basis. We try to be flexible, but when classes are full it is sometimes difficult to fit an extra couple into the room. Feel free to email our Lessons Coordinator at email@example.com with any questions you may have.
We hope you never have a problem with lessons, but if you do please talk to your instructors first. You may also speak with any of the assistants. If the issue persists, you are welcome to email our Lessons Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please inform one of your instructors to assist you. We will ask that you fill out an Incident Report Form which will be available at all lessons. We will follow-up as necessary.
Aggie Wranglers lessons will always be taught by an approved current team couple to ensure the safety of our participants.
Rates vary according to the number of couples participating in the requested lesson. Prices may be found on our Private Lessons page here. Please note that lessons located more than 25 miles from the Bryan/College Station area may require additional travel fees.
Private lessons may be requested by the half-hour. If you have questions concerning the allotment of time needed for your participants in your private lesson, please contact our Lessons Coordinator at email@example.com.
We teach a variety of classes for people of all different skill levels. Private lessons may be customized to incorporate a variety of moves taught in each of our classes.

We do our very best to work with each lesson request, regardless of submission; however, it is preferable that requests are made at least 4-6 weeks in advance.

Tryouts occur once a year in April, traditionally on the last weekend.
