ORYA’s Dance program serves members of the community that want to use their bodies in a non-sport discipline. Participants will not be competing in the classic sense but will be participating in a program that utilizes their bodies as much as traditional sports leading to healthier bodies & minds.


Each year ORYA may offer new and different dance program options based on the level and experience of instructors. Historically ORYA has been able to offer a break-dance, hip-hop class with instructor Shawn Middleton. This program offers an old-school style for participants of a wide age range to experience. The UNH dance team has offered programming with a mixed-discipline approach. As instructors & volunteers are found new programs may be added to cater to our community.

    This high-energy program teaches basic hip-hop and break dancing moves along with the historical origin of this amazing form of dance. Cooperative and individual moves will be taught.
