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 Dance Pak 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/or appear at Ryerson Rams home basketball, volleyball and hockey games as well as competing in three (3) university/college dance competitions each year.

The Dance Pak practices twice a week, Sunday afternoons and one week night (subject to change). Which weeknight (Tuesday or Wednesday) will be finalized in September.
