Description

DubH is a hip-hop dance club dedicated to teaching and learning amazing dances. No dance experience is required to join! We take people who have never danced before as well as people who have danced since they were a baby. There are dances for every skill level and everyone is welcome to do any dance they're interested in! All of our choreographers are student volunteers. They work hard every semester to create upbeat dances. In the spring we have a performance team that travels around the metro to perform at various events. DubH is an open community of dancers and encourages everyone to join!
