Spirit of Color (SoC) is a Tufts University student run performing arts dance troupe that encourages students to explore their creativity through dance and share their artistic expression with others.
Created in 1993 as a “means of cultural expression through singing acting and dancing”, SoC has become one of Tufts’ most popular performing arts troupes. SoC’s shows feature a wide range of dance genres including hip-hop, jazz, contemporary, modern, and cultural styles (flamenco, capoeira, salsa). Dance forms have also included stepping, tap, ballet/lyrical, and b-boying.
Spirit of Color takes the stage at the end of each semester in Cohen Auditorium at the Aidekman Arts Center, located on Talbot Ave. Student choreographers and dancers work hard together throughout the semester to create an uproariously entertaining performance showcasing original choreography for family, friends, and the Tufts community. SoC highly encourages audience participation during their shows whether it be through their intermission dance contest or cheering “SoCeee!”. SoC’ers are always eager to show their Jumbo pride by participating in many Tufts performances such as the Freshman Orientation Show, Sarabande’s Supershow, and Parents Weekend.
Keep an eye out for auditions, performances, and open classes throughout the semester.
