Description

The Dance Pak is a team of competitively trained dancers that compete yearly against other schools' University Dance Competitions. There are three weekly practices, ranging from 5-12 hours of mandatory practice time. The Dance Pak competes in three competitions per season, all during the month of March, as well as a year-end showcase after the competition season has ended. Our team mainly focuses on contemporary, lyrical and jazz, but members may train in tap and hip-hop. Dance Pak is an amazing way to keep active, get involved with the university community, and make amazing friends! New members must participate in an audition at the beginning of each new year in September.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with the Dance Pak Captains.

We look forward to another very successful year!
