Interested in dance at St. Olaf? You have options

Do you ever find yourself bopping to a beat, twirling at random or walking around campus with a skip in your step? Get moving to the music by joining a dance club at St. Olaf.

D-VINE: This is a new modern pop dance organization that specializes in grooving to Asian music like Korean pop. The group plans to host a showcase in the spring and collaborate on events throughout the year with the Korean Culture Association and the Chinese Culture Club. Check out the videos on their YouTube channel (D-VINE Entertainment) and Instagram page (dv_ent). D-VINE welcomes anyone interested in dancing, editing, filming and anyone who just wants to hang out with the group. To dance the night away, email public relations officer Nina Vang ’21 at vang28@stolaf.edu.

Swing Club: Learn the Lindy Hop and other dances at St Olaf’s very own Swing Club. The group meets every Tuesday in Center for Art and Dance (CAD) Studio 1, with a lesson from 9–10 p.m. and a free dance from 10–11 p.m. Everyone is welcome to join, and there’s no need to bring along a partner. Swing Club also travels to dances in the Twin Cities and hosts dances on campus in conjunction with St. Olaf jazz bands.

M.I.X.: This is a hip-hop club that strives to use their moves to bring people together and supply entertainment at athletic and social events. Their dancers have a range of experience, and anyone, regardless of race, gender, year or major is welcome to audition. Auditions for this school year have passed, but you can still enjoy M.I.X by checking out their first performance of the year at Fresh Space on Nov. 9 at 2:00 p.m. in CAD.
Ballroom Dance Club: Lovers of elegance, Ballroom Dance Club is place for you. Join this club to learn ballroom dance techniques and etiquette and have fun dancing as well. The group meets on Wednesdays from 8–9:30 p.m. in CAD Studio 1, spending the first hour learning the dance and the last half hour twirling to the music. The club even takes trips to the Twin Cities to attend dances throughout the year and brings in professionals for dance workshops.
