Terpsichore Dance Collective, affectionately known as Terp, is the largest student club on campus. They seek to bring the art of expression through movement to all of Knox. They are dedicated to building a thriving, diverse dance community by creating educational and performance opportunities that foster exploration in the art of moving. Please visit the club's Facebook [1], Instagram [2], and web page [3] to see what Terp is doing!

Terpsichore puts on one formal show each fall and winter term. These shows take place in CFA. People of all skill level are encouraged to audition and many people with little or no dance experience are selected. Anyone can apply to be a choreographer, as long as they have participated in at least one of Terpsichore's shows in the past.

Besides producing 2 formal shows a year and one informal show, which is usually Dancefest in the spring. Dancefest is held in front of Old Main, and provides a fun opportunity to take short movement workshops and showcase a low-key performance outdoors in the beautiful spring weather. Terpsichore also strives to bring at least one residency to campus every year, giving students an opportunity to experience a new style of movement and/or choreography. They also host open classes and hold events such as Paint Palooza and Improv Jams that basically just excuses to get together and enjoy moving.

Finally, Terpsichore annually attends the festivals held by the American College Dance Association (ACDA), which usually takes place near or during Spring Break. Typically 10 dancers are taken and 2 pieces are selected to be performed.
