It has since evolved into a large group of talented, passionate, and devoted dancers who work together to perform at UConn's very own Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts at the end of each semester. Every aspect of the show is designed by the students--choreography, staging, music and lighting. Styles range from hip hop to ballet, jazz, modern, lyrical, musical theater, and much more!

Rhythmic Circus /events/view.php?id=435

Dance / Tap Dance

Doors open at 7:00 pm
Sandwiches, soup, salad, dessert, cash bar 

There’s tap dancing and then there’s Rhythmic Circus, the percussive-dance phenomenon that electrifies audiences with its hard-hitting, rapid-fire tap, sidesplitting humor and finger-snapping tunes. A seven-piece band and vocalists ignite Rhythmic Circus’ appetite for tap dancing, performed on everything from sand to folding chairs. 

“….so brilliantly danced it was really irresistible.” – The People’s Critic

UConn Tap Team /events/view.php?id=458

Dance / Tap Dance

The UConn Tap Team is a club sport organization, comprised of tap dancers who wish to expand upon our talents and learn new methods, steps, and more from each other. Through tap, we strive to create connections with others, both those who tap, as well as those who do not. We participate in community services events, fundraisers, and perform locally on campus, as well as compete regionally in dance competitions.

 Each spring, the Tap Team puts on our Annual Showcase which is a compilation of our dances that we have been working on throughout the year. These consist of not only tap routines created by our team choreographers, but also other small groups choreographed by members of the team, varying in dance styles. In addition to our dances, we invite other groups around campus to perform as well. In the past we've had A Completely Different Note, RubyFruit, UConn Dance Company, and many others as well.

Josh Radnor – <b>SOLD OUT</b> /events/view.php?id=462

Variety / Lecture


Josh Radnor is perhaps best known for his role as Ted, the central character on CBS's Emmy-nominated comedy HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER which ended its nine-season long run in March 2014, but Radnor's talents extend beyond acting, and he has quickly established himself as both a gifted writer and director.

Radnor has written, directed and starred in two feature films. His most recent, LIBERAL ARTS, premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and was released by IFC that fall. His first feature film, HAPPTHANKYOUMOREPLEASE, debuted at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Audience Award for Favorite U.S. Drama.

His television credits include guest appearances on ER, SIX FEET UNDER, JUDGING AMY, and LAW & ORDER among others. He was a series regular on ABC's THE COURT starring Sally Field.  He made his film debut in the original teen spoof, NOT ANOTHER TEEN MOVIE.

Radnor first starred on Broadway as the title character in THE GRADUATE, opposite Kathleen Turner and Alicia Silverstone. He recently returned to Broadway in DISGRACED, the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Ayad Akhtar. Radnor will return to Broadway in the spring of 2016 as Georg in a revival of SHE LOVES ME, directed by six-time Tony nominee Scott Ellis.

Cameron Carpenter /events/view.php?id=424

Music / Classical-Urban Fusion

“Not Your Grandma’s Organist”: Alternatingly dazzling and subtle, and always fired by a profound musical intelligence.” – The Wall Street Journal

Cameron Carpenter, one of the world's top organists, has not only brought the "king of instruments" out of the church and onto the new stage, but has exposed an entirely new generation to the wonders of the pipe organ through his videos on YouTube. Unorthodox, controversial, and flamboyant, he amazes audiences with his astounding technique (both hands and feet), and breaks preconceptions of the pipe organ as a concert instrument.

Cameron Carpenter's recent concert this January at the Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas created quite a stir when music critic Scott Cantrell called it "a candidate for the year’s most bizarre concert." Check out the review and many impassioned responses that followed in the Dallas Morning News.

Look for Cameron Carpenter on the cover of Hartford Courant's CTNOW.

“Carpenter is one of the rare musicians who changes the game of his instrument… He is a smasher of cultural and classical music taboos. He is technically the most accomplished organist I have ever witnessed… And, most important of all, the most musical.” – The Los Angeles Times

“No other musician of Carpenter’s generation has more adeptly fused shrewd showmanship, dazzling technique and profound thinking about his instrument and his place in the musical cosmos...” – The San Francisco Chronicle
