At FLC, students have a chance to get really dynamic with their study breaks. Sure, we’re known for our world-class hiking, skiing, and mountain biking. But we also have a hoppin’ dance community that’s accessible to dancers of all skill levels and styles.

These four groups get us up and boogying, while also experiencing the physical movements of history, culture, personal expression, and school spirit. And they’re not just for students – each of these groups engages with the rest of campus and the greater Durango community, too.

Ballet Folklorico


Ballet Folklorico de Durango focuses on embracing traditional Mexican dances on campus. The cultural and performing arts group is open to FLC students and K-20 students in the area regardless of ethnicity, language, or dance abilities. This program of El Centro de Muchos Colores, FLC’s Hispano resource center, offers weekly dance classes to participants, with scholarships available for community participants.

Social Dance Club

The student-run Social Dance Club pairs weekly instruction on partnered dances with several social balls each year. The club learns the steps and the cultural history of dances from Argentine tango and salsa to waltz and swing, all with a supportive, fun-loving vibe. Plus, teachers and experienced dancers from Durango join in regularly, integrating FLC dancers into the local dance community.

Dance Co-Motion

Dance Co-Motion creates live, expressive group dance performances twice each year. The student-led organization welcomes students of all skills and abilities who want to share their personalities and hearts through dance and movement. Think passion over perfection – these dances aren’t in a traditionalist’s playbook.

Dance Team

The FLC Dance Team performs at every home football game and men’s and women’s basketball game, as well as hosting clinics for area youth. Dancers audition at the beginning of the academic year, and the team is open to both men and women. In addition to dancing, the team spreads awareness of issues such as domestic violence and breast cancer through their platform.
