Welcome to the website for OPTIMA Dance, the largest student dance organization at the University of Wisconsin – Madison!
Who are we?
Optima Dance is a student organization that was created to give dancers at UW-Madison the opportunity to showcase their own choreography and perform in student choreographed works. Optima gives students of all dance backgrounds and all fields of study the opportunity to experiment with and express their talents in all genres of dance. Previous shows have included everything from tap to jazz to Irish dance to musical theatre! We welcome all forms of dance and all levels of dancers. Optima offers many opportunities for its members, including performances across campus as well as yoga, technique, and dance classes and monthly master classes in various styles of dance. Most importantly, Optima spends each semester preparing for the fall and spring showcases. This includes weekly rehearsals, a feedback showing, a dress rehearsal, and finally the show itself! Each year, the shows draw hundreds of audience members, creating memories for the dancers, choreographers, and the audience alike.
