At Georgetown University, students have the opportunity to participate in dance in a variety of ways, including ensembles (two academic and three co-curricular), as well as courses in the classroom that focus on the history, design, and music of dance.  The Georgetown University Dance Company and Black Movements Dance Theatre are professionally directed and have recently featured masterclasses, residencies, and choreography by artists from American Ballet Theater, the Alvin Ailey Company, and Broadway productions such as Bring in Da Noise, Bring in Da Funk.

Student-run groups include Ritmo y Sabor Latin Dance, a diverse group that promotes awareness of Spanish-speaking Caribbean culture and of the northernmost countries of South America through dance; Groove Theory, a group that offers students the opportunity to learn, teach and enjoy hip hop dance; and Ballet Folklorico Mexicano de Georgetown, an ensemble that has embraced the Mexican tradition of folkloric dance from the various Mexican states, as well as modern styles including bachata, salsa and merengue.
