EnCore

EnCore is a multicultural, co-ed, hip hop dance group based at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. It began in 2000 when a group of friends came together to form a dance group on campus united not only in their love of dancing, but with each other as well. Re-established in 2005, EnCore is a family as much as it is a dance group. While EnCore takes dancing very seriously, they never lose sight of the bonds they have made with each other. EnCore performs at a variety of functions across campus and Ann Arbor from charity events to bar nights. If you are interested in having EnCore perform at one of your events, please don't hesitate to email them at encore@umich.edu.
