Spring Semester

In the spring we work with choreographers who are on faculty in the Dance program. These pieces showcase a variety of dance styles including ballet, modern, hip hop, West African, and more! This concert is performed in the Presentation Theater.


Participation is by audition at the beginning of each semester. If chosen to be in a piece, students can receive credit through Workshop in Dance Production (DANC 480-01). Students in the USF Dance Ensemble can receive up to 4 units for their participation in weekly rehearsals and concert production week.
