Dance at Boston College takes many forms. The Theatre department offers a variety of courses in dance technique, ballet, jazz, modern dance, dance for musicals and more!
BC also has many extra-curricular dance groups, including: Dance Ensemble and Dance Organization of Boston College (jazz, contemporary, ballet, etc.); Synergy, UPrising Dance Crew and Phaymus (Hip-Hop); V.I.P. and Fuego del Corazon (latin); Sexual Chocolate and F.I.S.T.S (step); Irish Dance (Irish step); Full Swing (swing); and On Tap (tap). BC is also home to the Boston Liturgical Dance Ensemble, a professional not-for-profit dance company.
In Fall 2007 BC inaugurated the new Brighton Dance Studio as the designated home for dance on campus. Converted from the gymnasium of the former St. John's Seminary on the Brighton campus, the studio is used for dance classes, rehearsals, and workshops.
