ABOUT THE TEAM

As the official dance team of the Ryerson Rams, the Ryerson DancePak strives to encourage school spirit, entertain Rams fans, and represent Ryerson at the top level in Canadian collegiate competitive dance.

The team is comprised of experienced dancers from all programs of study, who want to continue performing and competing at an advanced level. The DancePak focuses mainly on contemporary, jazz, hip hop, and lyrical, but if there are enough team members with strengths in other styles (ie: tap, acro) then those styles may be incorporated. Team members perform and appear at Ryerson Rams home basketball, volleyball, and hockey games as well as competing in three university/college dance competitions each year.

The DancePak practices twice a week: Sunday afternoons and one week night. Which weeknight (Tuesday or Wednesday) will be finalized in September. Further information about the team and tryouts can be found on the team's Facebook page or by emailing dancepak@ryerson.ca
