FreshDance, the freshman year dance company, provides a dynamic and professional performance opportunity for the incoming class of Drexel University. Students participating in the 25-member ensemble will explore their artistry through working with professional choreographers, both faculty and guests artists, as well as some exceptional student choreographers. FreshDance presents the dance pieces in a fully produced concert twice a year.
This year, FreshDance joins forces with Dance Ensemble to create Dance Film Concert, our first ever dance on video production. Learn more about the Dance Film Concert here.

Our Core Values
We strive to provide a safe environment where students can be imaginative, explorative, challenged, surrounded by pluralistic ideas, and guided to achieve artistic and technical goals. We value hard work, working as a team, and the communal spirit it takes to achieve a fully produced dance performance. This home – and place of artistry – will serve the students. This is a place for dancers to learn, expand, unite, and be.
