University Dance Theater

University Dance Theatre, directed by Raphael Boumaila, is San José State University’s contemporary dance ensemble. Performing in the distinctive tradition of the American Modern Dance, UDT serves as the training ground for the advanced dance major preparing for a professional career.

UDT has performed works by José Limón and American Modern Dance pioneers Hanya Holm and Doris Humphrey. Along with state tours and on-campus lecture demonstrations, UDT participates annually in “Dancin’ Downtown – South Bay Celebrates National Dance Week” and attends the American College Dance Festival/Conference.

UDT rehearses daily.

The 2015-16 Season features works by American master José Limón, Michael Uthoff, Holly Johnston, and faculty members Heather Cooper and Dominique Lomuljo.
