Step Up: CU Style
Walking towards the Brooks Center for the Arts is not a trek that is normally in my path. However, on this particular day I was headed for the dance studio, located in Brooks 220, on a mission to continue a life-long passion of mine.
I have adorned tutus, tights, and slippers ever since I can remember and attending college was not going to hinder my love of ballet. Through OrgSync I located a dance club on campus called Clemson Dancers, or ClemDance for short. They meet Sunday through Thursday with various classes that run from 5 p.m.-10 p.m. Selections of classes include: ballet, clogging, tap, jazz, contemporary, and break dance. Classes begin the week of September 3rd and last all year long, ending with a showcase on Saturday, April 14th.
One of the most appealing parts of ClemDance is that the group is open to anyone who is interested in learning various styles of dance. No prior experience is required or necessary. All classes are taught by experienced students who exhibit advanced skills in a wide range of dance styles. Semester dues are $20 for as many classes as you would like to take. This allows dancers to be as involved as they wish without having to sacrifice prior duties and class time.
Throughout the fall semester, students learn basic skills from each area of dance. This helps build a strong foundation that will assist them during the spring semester when combinations form into choreographed dances that will be used during the showcase in April.
ClemDance also houses a competitive dance team called TigerStrut. This co-ed team is audition based and participates in several dance competitions throughout the year.
A full list of dance classes and their times, as well as contact information can be found on the Clemson Dancers OrgSync and Facebook pages.
