Dance Team

The Villanova Dance Team is one of the most active and recognizable groups on campus and in the Villanova community.  They perform at every home football and men's basketball games as well as campus and community events such as Hoops Mania, St. Thomas of Villanova Day, Special Olympics, and Candidates' Day.  Additionally, the Dance Team has begun competing in the NCA/NDA Collegiate Cheer and Dance Championship in Daytona Beach, Florida.  This past year the Dance Team came home with a 5th place trophy after competing for their first time!  This was a huge accomplishment for the team, and they wish only to improve next year!

Upcoming Auditions

Music Activities Group Auditions

Auditions for VST One Acts.  Details will be posted once works are chosen from submissions due 11/14. 

Tips for picking monologue:

  • Pick one that fits your age range and gender (If you're a young female, don't pick King Lear's monologue!)
  • Pick one you enjoy! (The audience won't love it unless you love it!)
  • Something you connect with/understand (It makes it easier to perform when you connect with the character you play)

Acapella, auditioned Dance Groups, and Theater Groups with Fall Productions have all held their Auditions.   Check back near the end of the semester for mid-academic year opportunities to audition.

Other Auditions
Most groups do not require auditions.  Please join us at a rehearsal!
