Bobcat Dance Theatre

So, what is Bobcat Dance Theatre?

Group Dancers Outisde

Bobcat Dance Theatre is an inclusive company, open to all majors, that uses a heavy theatrical influence to bring original stories to life on the stage, on camera, in the studio, etc. The company offers an all-encompassing, wide range of arts and styles of dance. Bobcat Dance Theatre also provides open workshops to workshop choreography and experiment with ideas. Bobcat Dance Theatre is a communal organization that supports collaboration in the arts but is not directly affiliated with any other organization or program.

How Can I Be a Part of BDT?

Membership in the company is awarded through completion and selection during the audition process. Any current student at Texas State of any major is eligible to audition for membership in Bobcat Dance Theatre.

Admittance into the company will be awarded based on selection by the officers and executive board of the company alone. This selection process is based on these factors:

  • Dance ability – display of dance technique.

  • Theatrical presence – ability to portray a believable character and to tell a story.

  • Availability and schedule conflicts – the availability of the performer to attend all rehearsals and performances required.

  • Commitment – the display of passion and the interest to be a part of the company and to support and further our mission.

​*Bobcat Dance Theatre is a nondiscriminatory organization and will never base membership or admittance on anything else.

​Members must be able to attend all required rehearsals, performances, special events, fund raising sessions, publicity opportunities, and any other required events.

Are There Any Leadership Opportunities?
