Modernextension is a fully student-run dance company at UNC that has the privilege of being part of the Sport Clubs program through Campus Recreation. Over the past 31 years, Modernextension has provided the Carolina community with high quality performances and an outlet for dancers looking to advance their modern dance technique. Under the instruction of dance professionals, the dancers have the privilege of weekly technique classes, in conjunction with year-long rehearsals. We have two shows–an informal improvisation show in the fall, and a showcase in the spring that is completely student-choreographed. We don’t require a certain level of dance experience to be a member, but we have auditions in late August in order to keep our company small and close-knit. Come check us out!
