The Furman Dance Company is an organization that exists to foster and improve the creative art of dance in a team-building environment through regular training, rehearsals and performances. We are an extremely talented group of dancers who value commitment and passion in order to continue fostering our love for dance in college. We are a dynamic group of ladies that practice 2 times per week for a few hours with additional rehearsals as performances approach.
During the football season, the Furman Dance Company is the official dance team of Furman University. We join the Paladin Regiment for spectacular performances during halftime as an auxiliary unit of the Furman Marching Band. In addition to halftime performances, we dance on the sidelines while encouraging the Furman football team onto victory. We also join the band at the annual Greenville Christmas Parade downtown.
Following football season, we perform at the halftime of some basketball games. The company incorporates student choreography ranging from jazz to hip hop to pump up the crowd. We spend the majority of second semester preparing for Dance Spectacular. It is a highly anticipated annual spring event, which attracts people from all across Greenville as well as many Furman students. The Furman Dance Company performs several pieces of various types. Over the years we have had student and guest choreographers ranging from jazz to lyrical, from modern to tap, and hip hop to musical theater
We are all very diverse, but share the common thread of dance. This company creates friendships that will last beyond your years at Furman University.
