University Dance Company
University Dance Company (UDC) is a faculty advised and student run concert dance organization. The focus of the UDC is to promote dance as an art form at West Chester University and to provide students with interests in choreography, performance, stage management, lighting and costume design, and arts administration the opportunity to create and shape their voice within this art form. UDC has two concerts every season; the fall concert focuses on faculty and guest artist work, while the spring concert mainly presents student choreography and design. Students work with both faculty and guest artists in the creation of new choreography and design.
Excellent opportunities in theatre are offered through this student organization, which functions in the StudioStage and MainStage theatres of the Bull Center and in the new Madeleine Wing Adler Theatre. Its major productions, drawn from the classics, contemporary drama, and Broadway musicals are outstanding events for the University and community as well. Additional activities can include participation in Homecoming, the AIDS benefit, working concessions for MainStage productions, and monthly socials. All students with an interest in drama are welcome.
