Snow Dance Ensemble

Snow College Dance Ensemble provides students with the unique opportunity to experience dance in a professional setting. Our Dance Ensemble members are more than performers. They are also organizers, promoters, choreographers, sound engineers and costume designers. Our busy season includes several dance concerts at the Eccles Center for the Performing Arts, a concert of Student Choreography at the Granary Arts Center, a Snow You Think You Can Dance Fundraiser/Event, multiple performances and classes at the American College Dance Association Conference and ongoing outreach activities with local high schools including Wasatch Academy, Manti High School and Springville High School. As a result of this well-rounded education many of the former Dance Ensemble members successfully continue their dance paths as professional performers, choreographers and dance scholars.
