Year at a Glance
Icebreaker and Welcome Back Dance (September)
We begin our year with our icebreaker and welcome back dance. Newcomers can come meet our executive team as well as some members of our community. Much fun will be had as our executive team has prepared many fun games and activities for new members. Right after the icebreaker is the first social dance of the year. Social dances are a huge part of Dance Club, so you wont want to miss the first one of the year.
Team Match (November)
Team Match is the first major event of the year. Current members as well as alumni are split into teams and pitted against each other in a skit competition to win the much coveted team match trophy. Team Match is a great way for newcomers to meet people from the larger dance community and experience what a dance competition can be like in a friendly atmosphere.
