Extracurricular dance groups are popular centers of social and
creative student activity. These groups operate independently of the
Dance Program, though we enjoy a healthy cross-over between the
Dance Program and these groups. Dance groups rehearse in our Dance
Program studios and share informal campus programming. For further
information regarding the extra-curricular dance groups, please
Tufts Office for Campus Life at 617.627.3212 or via
individual group representatives.
Tufts Ballroom – a student run dance group focusing on ballroom
and latin dance. We give lessons on a biweekly basis to anyone who is interested
in learning. In addition to lessons, we participate in both competitions and
social dancing, and have a show dance component. No audition or experience is required!
Tufts Bhangra – one of Boston's premier co-ed bhangra teams! Bhangra is a
traditional north Indian art form that has evolved in the United States into a high-energy
and competitive style of dance. We compete all over the country each year and we have
traveled to places like Santa Barbara, New York, Ohio State and more. On-campus, we
usually perform multiple times a semester, including performances at the annual TASA
Culture Show around the end of February! Each year, we have tryouts at the beginning
of the fall semester. Come check us out!
Tufts Burlesque Troupe – exists to create an identity affirming and
body celebrating community through dance. We are an ever-expanding, no cuts group
with over three hundred dancers. Our style of dance is diverse, encompassing everything
from traditional and contemporary burlesque to hip hop. We produce one show at the end
of each semester with approximately eighteen dances.
Burlesque welcomes dancers of all experience levels and backgrounds. Our number one
goal is for dancers to feel confident and sexy both on and off stage. For questions
and comments, please email us at
Tufts Dance Collective –
A no audition,
no experience necessary dance group
Tufts La Salsa – is Tufts' only Latin dance group. We dance a variety of
Latin dances, focusing mostly on salsa and bachata. We have an open club and a performance team.
The club is open to everyone. We teach club lessons every Tuesday from 8:30 - 9:30 in Jackson Lab.
We also go out to local latin dance clubs, occasionally sponsoring the outing. We also host
the on-campus event, Noche Caliente.
Our dance team rehearses all year round, often performing at the end of the first semester
and always performing our pieces at culture shows, dance showcases, fundraisers, and other
events throughout the second semester.
We create our own choreography, drawing both on tradition and fusion, and and encourage
students' connection and reconnection to Latino culture through the rhythms and movements
of Afro-Latino dance, both social and performance.
