Guest Artists

The Ursinus College Dance Program regularly brings professional dance artists to campus as adjunct professors and as part of our guest residency program.

Guest artists teach classes and conduct an intensive rehearsal process with students, culminating in a performance at the Ursinus College Dance Company (UCDC) Concert.  Through these residencies, we offer our students the opportunity to study and perform a wide range of dance forms, including: ballet, jazz, modern, African dance, Hip Hop, tap dance, dance theater, contact improvisation, ballroom dance and others.
