OPTIMA Dance is a student organization that was created to give dancers at UW-Madison the opportunity to showcase their own choreography and perform in student choreographed works. It gives students of all dance backgrounds and all fields of study the chance to experiment with and expose their talents in all genres of dance. Previous shows have included everything from tap and jazz to Irish and musical theatre. We welcome all forms of dance and all levels! In 2009, Optima Dance became UW-Madison’s largest dance student organization with over 100 members and continues to grow each semester!
Optima's spring showcase will feature 36 different dances, a perfect mixture of styles to get you out of your seat dancing. The show will run around two hours, with a brief intermission. Join us for the 15th year of Optima shows on Sunday, April 29th at Shannon Hall.
