Become part of our annual show!

Learn routines in specific styles, set to a story and music on stage! If you would like to delve into a particular style (or set of styles) over the course of a quarter, show off your moves, or realize a creative vision, then come to auditions as a dancer or submit a bid as a choreographer. All levels are welcome!
