 About the Team 

The Saint Mary's University Dance Club is comprised of dedicated Saint Mary's University students who share a love of dance. The Club’s main focus is on hip-hop, but often incorporates multiple styles of dance into their routines. Its members have various styles of dance experience. The Saint Mary's Dance team exists to give the opportunity for dancers in the SMU community to share their passion and contributes to school spirit. Over the years, the Dance Club has focused on performing at Varsity games, competing at competitions and fundraising.

The Dance Club Team has won six Dance titles at Cheer Expo Nationals in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2013, 2014, and 2015. They have also received the bid to represent Canada at Dance Worlds in Disney World, Florida each of those years. In 2008, they placed 8th at Dance Worlds and qualified for the finals in 2010, 2013, 2014, and 2015.

Please email for more information or if you are unable to attend one of the two tryout nights. 

Auditions span over two days. On the first day, everyone will learn a piece of choreography. On the second day, the choreography will be reviewed and everyone will be split into smaller groups to audition. You will be evaluated on how quickly you can pick up the choreography, how you perform, and how you have improved over the two days. Dance experience isn't required.
