UTPA Dance Companies

The most visible aspect of dance at UTPA has been the three dance performance companies, the UTPA Ballet Folklorico, Dance Ensemble, and the Cuadro Flamenco.  At present, approximately eighteen formal dance concerts are presented annually. In addition, the dance program provides performances, lecture demonstrations, workshops, and expertise to the community-at-large, addressing the special needs of the region. The dance companies also extend their services to the valley through alumni who have found employment in private and public schools, universities, professional dance companies, and recreational programs.
