The Northeastern University Dance Company (NUDANCO) is the longest standing performance-based dance company at Northeastern University. Established in 2002, NUDANCO’s bi-annual showcases have become a permanent fixture in the NUperforming arts scene. Our performances feature an all-student cast of dancers and choreographers, who collaborate for months to produce artistic works that will entertain the NU community, dance enthusiasts, and our supportive fans. Our dancers are committed, creative and passionate about sharing their love of dance with our audiences. In addition to our own showcases, NUDANCO collaborates with other dance and non-dance groups at NU to create various performance opportunities.
The goal of The Northeastern University Dance Company (NUDANCO) is to provide an artistic outlet and performance opportunities for NU students with a passion and commitment to dance. NUDANCO is performance driven, serving its members -the dancers – and its community – the audience. NUDANCO values dance traditions, form and technique, and focuses on creative, artistic expression through movement. Company members contribute choreography in the genres of modern, hip-hop, jazz, ballet, lyrical, tap and other interpretive and classical styles. NUDANCO is entirely student run, and features a collaboration of expressive student choreography in its showcase each semester.
Company membership is determined by audition. Auditions are held in September and January for inclusion in that semester’s showcase. We invite both undergraduate and graduate NU students. For more information on auditions and membership, please see our FAQ page.
