Entering its 27th year, the University of Ottawa competitive dance team provides advanced dancers a way of continuing to dance and compete through their post-secondary education. The dance team specializes in Jazz,Contemporary and Lyrical, but provides dancers opportunities to focus on other styles such as Hip-Hop, Tap, Open and Acro. The team rehearses 6-10 hours a week in preparation for performances and competitions, and to build the strong bond and team spirit that the Gee-Gees dance team is known for.
The team participates in two university dance competitions every spring, competing against university dance teams from all over Canada, and puts on an annual year-end showcase. The dance team has won multiple overall awards for solos, groups, judges choice, and choreography. Each year, we perform at Dancers Give Back. In addition to Dancers Give Back, we also put on a half time performance at Capital Hoops.
