Find your rhythm

If you want to take your dance skills to the next level, think about auditioning for UW-Eau Claire’s primary dance performance group, The Ensemble. These students are dedicated and committed to physical practice and theoretical studies and take on intensive practices to hone their skills. You will meet national and international dance artists to help further your knowledge and abilities in dance.

Through dance courses, the dance certificate and student organizations, there are many opportunities for students to explore dance at UWEC. Beginning and advanced courses in ballet, modern, jazz and tap are regularly taught. A variety of professional dancers serve as guests in courses and rehearsals, expanding the exposure students receive to diverse dancers. Students can participate in the annual dance concert, which is performed at Pablo Center, with choreography by students, faculty and guests.

The department of music and theatre arts is the reason I call UWEC home. The staff genuinely cares about my success and the students have become lifelong friends. I cannot imagine who I would be without the talented and inspiring individuals who make up this facet of the university and encourage me to do what I love.
