Madison Dance


Madison Dance

Madison Dance Club provides an opportunity for students to express themselves through various forms of dance, including but not limited to jazz, hip-hop, street and lyrical. Madison Dance performs all around campus for different events, and we also perform for great causes in Harrisonburg. In the past, we have performed at Sorority sponsored late night breakfasts, charity events, pep rallies, MS sleep outs, JMU's Got Talent, performances at retirement home talent shows, and university events. Not only do we do these performances to help out other organizations we have an end of the semester show each semester; we have a pretty full schedule. There are 48 members.

  • President: Ann Vespestad,
  • Vice President: Taylor Newland,
  • Treasurer: Samantha D’Addario,
  • Secretary: Andrea Raiello,
  • Advisor: Joan Kindig,

Our "season" begins the second week of each semester and ends before finals week, unless there is a conflict with when our end of the semester performance, thus causing us to push the end date back to the week of finals.

Try-outs occur once every semester; one try-out for Fall and one try-out for Spring. Try-outs are held in the UREC MAC Room around the second week of school from 9 AM until 5 PM. Student in good standing with the University (2.0 cumulative GPA) are eligible for membership after attending auditions and being offered membership. As a member, one is required to attend organization practices and meetings regularly, pay dues, and actively support organization projects. Currently, each member pays $30 dues per semester, but it is subject to change.

Each section (jazz, lyrical, hip-hop and street) practices once a week for 2 hours. Lyrical typically practices Sunday nights from 9PM until 11PM. Hip-hop typically practices Monday nights from 9PM until 11PM. Street typically practices Tuesday nights from 9PM until 11PM. Jazz typically practices Wednesday nights from 9PM until 11PM.
