Dance Ensemble

Four girls jumping in dance poses

Dance Ensemble is the professional contemporary dance company of Snow College.  We welcome movers of all backgrounds, experiences, and body types.  Dance Ensemble members are more than dancers.  They are also organizers, promoters, choreographers, sound engineers, and costume designers.  Our busy season usually 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, a guest performance at another Utah university or college, multiple performances and classes at the American College Dance Association Conference, and ongoing outreach activities with Utah high schools.  As a result of the well rounded education many of the Dance Ensemble members successfully continue their dance paths as professional performers, choreographers, and dance scholars.
