Comet Spirit Programs

Power Dancers

Power Dancers are the official dance team of UT Dallas. Members perform at varsity athletic events, make special appearances on campus throughout the year, and are a source of school spirit. They perform hip hop, pom, jazz, and a variety of other dance styles. Being a member of the Power Dancers family provides an opportunity for students to exercise initiative, leadership, and creativity through dance. In addition to performing at University and community events, Power Dancers have appeared on ESPN College Game Day and Good Morning Texas. The team also travels to Florida each year to compete at the National Dance Alliance (NDA) College Nationals.

Benefits

Since UT Dallas is a NCAA Division III school, we do not offer scholarships for dance. The University does pay for all uniforms, camp, and travel expenses to games and to the NDA Collegiate National Championship in Daytona Beach, FL. Uniform expenses paid for by the University include:

  • Warm-up
  • Shoes
  • Practice Gear
  • Uniforms
  • Bag
  • Poms
  • Accessories

Dancers at UT Dallas also enjoy priority enrollment, which means you are the first to enroll per semester no matter your classification.
