Comet Spirit Programs

Power Dancers

Power Dancers is the official dance team of UT Dallas. We perform for varsity games, make special appearances on campus throughout the school year, and provide a great source of school spirit. We perform pom, hip hop, jazz, and a variety of other dance styles. We also provide an opportunity for students to exert initiative, leadership, and creativity.

Power Dancers at UT Dallas also enjoy priority enrollment, which means you are the first to enroll per semester no matter your classification.
