Description

The Dance Pak is a team of competitively trained dancers that compete in University Dance Competitions, perform at school sports games, as well as perform throughout the Guelph community. There is a minimum of three practices per week, ranging from 7-15 hours of mandatory practice time. The Dance Pak generally competes in three competitions per season, beginning in mid-March, as well as holding a showcase performance prior to the competitive season. The team is mainly focused on contemporary, lyrical and jazz, but members also train in acrobatics, tap and hip-hop. Dance Pak is an amazing way to keep active, get involved with the university community, and make some friends that will last a lifetime! New members are required to participate in an audition that occurs at the beginning of each new year in September.

The Gryphon Dance Pak is an elite, well known team in the world of University Dance Competitions. In the 2019-2020 season, the team received numerous high score overall awards for both solo and group routines, they were also recognized as the Top University Team in both competitions the team competed in during the season. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Dance Pak Captains.

We look forward to another very successful year!
