University of Iowa Dance Company

Founded in 1986, UI Dance Company (formerly known as Dancers in Company) is UI's own touring dance company, comprised of a select group of auditioned dancers praised for their ability to reach all levels of dance-educated audiences through a changing repertory, mixing traditional works with new and innovative dances that audiences find humorous, poignant and sometimes unexpected.
