Dixie State Dance Company

Dixie State Dance Company

In September 2001, the Dixie State Dance Company was created and established. The DSDC provides the dance students at DSU with the best environment for dance performing experience and training. The goal of the company is to prepare students in dance technique and artistic expression aspects for dance performances and for their future dance career through rehearsing dance productions and learning dance techniques and performing skills that are required for dance performances. We emphasize the development of personal discipline, collaborative skills and creative expression. DSDC enables the serious dance students to gain and master the tools necessary to bring them the foundations of critical thinking and creative discipline. It helps the students begin to develop the personal dance identity and full maturity in order to flourish in the professional art world and function as an independent artist in today’s society. The Dance Company presents two performances per year; the Fall Dance Concert and Spring Dance Concert for Dixie State University students, faculty/staff and community members.
