Tufts Dance Collective dances their way through ‘Your Roman Empire’

Tufts Dance Collective’s semester show, “TDC Presents: Your Roman Empire,” on December 2nd at Cohen Auditorium was a performance for the ages. Tufts Dance Collective, or TDC for short, is one of many dance groups on Tufts’ campus that highlight student creativity and freedom of expression. Student choreography and creative wit are the forefront of this energetic and playful club. The Tufts Dance Collective has been around for at least 15 years and is a community event many enjoy participating in, leading or spectating. As one of the most highly anticipated student performances at Tufts, tickets for TDC often sell out within minutes of going on sale.There were 14 different group dances this semester. In pairs, students pitched names and themes around which to choreograph their dances. With titles like “Phineas and Ferbalicious” and “Barb Mitzvah,” the music and choreography of the dances often emulate and combine pop culture references.
