00:00:10 - University Dancers Experience

Play segment

Partial Transcript: I became a part of University Dancers last year, I transferred here and so it was kind of the first experience I had here on campus. I immediately found this really close knit group of people that I can go to for anything and who immediately became like my genuine friends. Sometimes your um put into situations where you’re like forced to hang out with a group of people. Sometimes that happens with sororities and other times not, and I was kind of anxious about that whole aspect of it. Cause I immediately felt like they were all very good friends with each other and enjoyed spending time together. As well as enjoyed the process of University Dancers.

Play segment

Partial Transcript: The audition would consist of a class, a couple of combinations, or phrases so you didn’t really know what the piece would be until we started tech. As a group everyone is super supportive so no one gets upset if there not in a piece or vice versa. It’s a very enriching process working with so many different artists.

Play segment

Partial Transcript: I feel like we should promote ourselves more maybe. I know people, I mean I think the campus knows we exist. It’s an academic credit, it’s not a D1 sport or club so we’re right in this category of our own. Where we are doing this for school so it is required.
