The UT Dance Team | Home

The University of Texas Dance Team, also known as Texas Dance, is the official dance team of the University of Texas at Austin! We have been in existence for over 35 years, and look forward to welcoming new faces to our team each year. Our team has performed at many UT events, such as Camp Texas, the OU Torchlight Parade and Rally and Texas A&M Hex Rally, and Basketball halftimes.

We are overseen by a RecSports advisor, team officers, and a part-time coach who work extremely hard to manage the team. Although performing for crowds is our main focus, we also make time for philanthropic and social activities. We constantly seek to spread our passion for dance to the the UT community, the city of Austin, and beyond through local and statewide events.

Each dancer on the team brings their own individual style to the group, making for a diverse group of artists whose talents extend far beyond what is seen on the surface. We are athletes and academics who come together on the dance floor as a closely knit family with a common goal to dance our hearts out and entertain our audience.
