Performing Arts Series: University Dancers

The first performance in the 4th season of our Performing Arts Series, the University Dancers is the performing and touring company for the University of Massachusetts-Amherst Dance Program, providing a uniquely diverse, creative, and artistic education to aspiring performers, dance makers, and teaching artists. Dancers work with guest artists at the forefront of their craft in both the United States and Europe as well as benefit from being a part of the Five College Dance Department (including Amherst, Mt. Holyoke, Hampshire, and Smith Colleges), quadrupling their opportunities in creative, collaborative, and performing opportunities.

Cushing's Performing Arts Series broadens and deepens our students’ exposure to first-rate performing artists, while also providing a service to our extended community. To learn more about the series, visit the webpage.

Performances are free and open to the public. To reserve your tickets, email us at and include your name, contact information, and number of attendees.
