Dance Within UMW

Alter Egos Step Team (AE STEP)

“The Alter Egos Step Team is the only step team here at UMW. Stepping is a form of dance that uses a series of stomps and claps to create new sounds and rhythms. Our motto is unity in diversity.”

Belly Dance (MEDC)

UMW Bellydance Team, aka the Middle Eastern Dance Club (MEDC,) was established in January 2016 with the goal of empowering all bodies through an enthusiasm for Belly Dance, creativity, and an appreciation for this culture and discipline.  We foster self-love, strong friendships within our team, and inclusivity above all!

Dance Team

The University of Mary Washington Dance Team performs at various school events, including the homecoming soccer game, home basketball games, PAC’s Small Show, Class Council’s Lip Sync and more. The team’s goal is to boost school spirit through jazz, hip hop and pom routines, as well as providing the dancers at UMW a chance to form a close bond with team members.

Eagle Bhangra

Eagle Bhangra is a multicultural performing team on campus. Bhangra is an Indian folk dance that originated in the Punjab region of India and is all about bringing joy to others through the dance. We perform at events like Taste of Asia, the Multicultural Fair, Small Show, and many more throughout the year. Anyone in the UMW community can join the team and learn this wonderful dance!

Praise Dance

UMW Praise Dance is a liturgical dance group that incorporates music and movement as a form of worship and an expression of art. Our group embraces dancers with all levels of ability and is dedicated to bringing a powerful praise atmosphere to the UMW community. Anyone who feels spiritual joy and wants to express it through dance can join in and are encouraged to do so.
