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. 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, dress rehearsal, and the showcase. Each year, the shows draw hundreds of audience members, creating memories for the dancers, choreographers, and the audience alike.

Browse our site for showcase details and any and all Optima updates. Please email to be added to our weekly email list so you can receive the most up-to-date information! Feel free to contact us at for any general questions or concerns.
