University Repertory Dance Theatre

The University Repertory Dance Theatre provides excellent opportunities for members to create, produce and perform their work. As company members, students participate in daily technique classes to build their dance skills. The dance faculty and Twin Cities-based guest artists also set work on the company as well. As members of the American College Dance Festival Association, they participate in an annual regional festival.

The U-Rep Dance Theatre is an excellent way for students to combine their previous experience with their newly gained knowledge of dance to provide audiences with an exhilarating dance experience.

Acceptance is based on auditions. Prior dance training is required.

Additional Activities

Students have numerous opportunities to perform in musical theatre productions produced by the Department of Theatre & Dance.
