Power Dancers

Power Dancers are the official dance team of UT Dallas. They perform for varsity athletic events and make special appearances on campus throughout the school year. They perform hip-hop, jazz and a variety of other dance styles. They also provide an opportunity for students to exercise initiative, leadership and creativity through dance. In addition, Power Dancers enjoy priority enrollment, which means they are one of the first groups to enroll each semester, no matter their academic classification.
