Performing Art Groups @Dartmouth!
Performing arts groups flourish at Dartmouth with numerous dance and a cappella groups. I have often found myself attending these performances happening throughout the term. It often gives me an opportunity to hang out with friends and show my support while also taking in amazing performances from talented Dartmouth students!
While I lack an artistic background, I thought I would share what it looks like to be part of these groups from my friends' perspectives!

Elizabeth from New York City, Rockapellas
"I tried out for a cappella because I wanted to try something new during my college experience related to music. In high school, I was really dedicated to playing the violin but wanted to branch out, so I tried my hand at singing! I also feel like I am great friends with the girls in my a capella group which I am really happy about! The community I gained through being in an a cappella group has been amazing."

Olivia from Berkely, Subleties
“I feel like being part of an a cappella group allows me to come into contact with campus traditions more fully as there are many fun things that each group does! The Subtleties do shake-outs before each performance to get rid of our nerves and the entire process of trying out for a cappella and getting chosen is really cool!”

Nicole from Lima, Fusion
"I love being a part of Fusion because all of the other girls in the group are extremely nice and supportive. I also love to perform and learn the choreography for our dances as it is a way I can express myself creatively on campus. My favorite thing so far has to see the support from students on campus during our performances! A lot of people come to watch the shows and it is great to be surrounded by an uplifting community here at Dartmouth."

José from Cali, Cords
"It's one of the most special communities I'm a part of on campus. All of the guys in my a capella group are very different, with a broad range of interests, personalities and pursuits, but we're brought together by our love of singing and music. And at the same time, what our group is about goes beyond just the music. My a capella group has helped me settle down with ease and adjust to the culture at Dartmouth and it has definitely increased the love I feel for this place."

I never considered myself to be a "Woo-Hoo!" type of person, but the Dartmouth community works wonders…
Some of you planning to attend Dartmouth as international students may be thinking, "How will I celebrate the family weekend at Dartmouth?" Isn't it something I need a family for? How will my family get to Dartmouth from the far ends of the earth?
