The Becker College Dance Program is a collaborative effort of young adults who love the art of dance. The Dance Program has a place for anyone who has a gift or ability to dance, choreograph, organize, fundraise, event plan, and so on! The Dance Program offers opportunities for dancers of all levels of experience and styles to continue to enjoy their love of dance as part of their college experience. The program consists of a Dance Club where anyone can be involved, no auditions or experience necessary and a Competitive Dance Team which holds auditions each spring for the following year's team. Both aspects of the program aim to dance to make a difference. The dancers participate in fundraisers and community events throughout the school year that benefit others in a variety of ways.
