Founded in 1985, Ujima is Dartmouth’s oldest dance organization.  The term “Ujima” is one of seven Kwanzaa principles meaning “collective work and responsibility.” As a student-run group, we take pride our name as a core value that distinguishes our work, performance, and group dynamic. And as a family, we are committed to utilizing our passion for dance to inspire and to transcend boundaries within diverse communities. Although our repertoire includes a variety of different styles (from African to jazz) Ujima currently focuses on hip-hop dance and style.

Check out our most recent performances on this website, or visit www.youtube.com/user/UJIMAdartmouth to see a more complete selection of the several shows we do throughout the year.
