Student Organizations Arts

Cohesion is an audition-based and student-led dance company here at IWU. It allows dancers of all styles and skill levels the opportunity to perform and/or choreograph. Cohesion Dance Company was started in 2008 by students who shared a mutual love and dedication for dance. Throughout the year, our members collaborate on a number of various pieces and perform them at our annual Spring Concert. Each of our dancers bring something unique to the company. The experience and skills each have range from ballet to jazz to hip hop to tap and beyond. Cohesion Dance Company members share the same passion for artistic movement and strive to share that joy with one another, as well as our audiences.

Membership requirements: Cohesion is an audition based dance company, auditions take place each fall; dance experience or background of some kind is recommended.
