University Dance Alliance

The University Dance Alliance is a student run organization open to anyone interested in dance, from beginner through advanced levels. The main feature of UDA is a weekly dance class held every Wednesday from 6-7pm. Through the weekly class series UDA offers a variety of dance styles that cannot be received through the dance program. The weekly classes are taught by students, faculty, and professional dancers brought to BG by UDA.

The goal of UDA is to promote dance on the BGSU campus and the surrounding community. Along with the weekly classes, the UDA Semester Dance Showcase, movie nights, socials, and other events are held to encourage interaction and sharing between those interested in the art of dance.
