SRU Dance Theatre

Slippery Rock University Dance Theatre (SRUDT) is one of the department’s student dance companies. SRUDT presents several concerts each year, with additional performances of selected dances at festivals, conferences and performances, tours and lecture/demonstrations.  SRUDT choreographers and performers undergo a rigorous rehearsal and audition process, which culminates in the pre-professional concert that has become a major part of the cultural life on campus.  This company provides students with the opportunity to create and perform dances influenced by their knowledge of dance technology, modern, contemporary, jazz, and tap forms.  Both fall and winter concerts are performed by SRU Dance Theatre.

Rock Dance Company

Rock Dance Company brings the art of dance into the community by performing in area schools districts, as well as senior centers and other community events.  Company members work with commissioned artists and gain experience in a wide variety of dance styles including hip hop, tap, swing, modern, and contemporary partnering.  This is an excellent opportunity for dance majors to participate in service-learning and strengthen skills for teaching children.
