About

Mission Statement

Our mission is to create an environment for beginning and intermediate dancers to grow, train, and challenge themselves.

Workshops

Throughout the year, Foundations Choreography holds free dance workshops, which are held at UCLA and are open to the public. Dedicated to exposing our dancers to various styles, we invite instructors from both within and outside the UCLA dance community to help build dance vocabulary, gain experience, and make connections with others in the world of dance. Check out our calendar for upcoming workshop dates and information!

Training Teams

FC training teams allow beginning and intermediate dancers to gain experience by being a part of a dance team. Every quarter, Foundations Choreography gathers experienced dancers in the community to direct our roughly 5 teams, each with about 40 members. Open to everyone to join on a first-come, first-serve basis, our training teams allow dancers to not only build technique and expand their dance background, but also attend inter-team bonding events and forge lifelong friendships. The FC training team experience culminates in an end-of-quarter exhibition in which dancers showcase a full set in front of friends and family. Whether through the team photoshoots and videos or the connections made with people from all backgrounds, Foundations Choreography offers a unique and memorable dance team experience here at UCLA.

Leadership

These people will keep you safe during the harrowing nights of our quarterly game of Assassins.
