Escape Velocity Dance Troupe

Escape Velocity is the student run dance company of Ursinus College.

Escape Velocity is a student run dance company. It shall be the purpose, objective, or mission statement of the Escape Velocity Dance Company to provide students the opportunity to choreograph for, dance in, and produce multiple performances for the Ursinus Community throughout the year. Our purpose is to provide a professional environment to foster student creativity through dance. All students are welcome to come to the initial meeting at the beginning of each semester and choose potential roles in upcoming shows. Membership is open to current full-time or part-time Ursinus College students. No student will be denied membership based on grounds of race, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age or disability. Membership allows the student to participate and dance, but given technical restrictions surrounding some productions, not every member is guaranteed the opportunity to perform. How often our organization meets is up to the discretion of the choreographer of the piece you dance it, but is typically once a week for each dance. In addition, we meet about 5-6 times a semester as a whole company before our biannual show weeks.
