The UGA Dance Company (UGADC) is a performance company for dance majors and minors. Students audition early in the fall semester (or throughout the year) for works choreographed by dance faculty and guest artists. The annual concert of UGADC is presented in April each year and many students also participate in the Black History Month concert in February. Other smaller performances occur throughout the year in departmental showcases such as the department’s Performance Sampler in November and February, and also at regional conferences, such as the Southeast American College Dance Association Conference, as well as other local and regional events. UGADC offers students a variety of styles to perform, including contemporary modern dance, classical and contemporary ballet, “genre-blending” contemporary works, African-fusion and sometimes jazz and tap works. Rehearsals are coordinated with all participating choreographers and generally will require 1-2 days per week for each piece/choreographer. Students may earn performance credits when participating in UGA Dance Company performances.
