Band & Dance Team Testimonial

Opportunities in musical performance and dance.

The Squadron of Gold offers performance opportunities for any UC student with a passion for music or dance. UC Bands includes both athletic and concert bands.

We offer a welcoming, collaborative, and progressive environment where you can learn, improve, and perform. Membership is open to any UC student through our “no stress” interactive audition process.

Being a part of UC Bands helps you develop a strong work ethic while also fostering teamwork and supporting a love of performing while representing the University of Charleston.

You can earn academic credit and scholarship money of up to $4,000, based on your skill level and residency status.

We offer a balanced schedule, with a time commitment of between 6-10 hours per week to allow you time to meet all your other commitments and activities.
