The Boot and Buskin Theatre Club
Founded in 1949, Boot and Buskin is the oldest theatre group on campus and is the primary vehicle for student theatrical activity. There are three mainstage faculty-directed productions each year with participation open to students in all majors. A student staff of 10-12 provide management and technical support to these shows as well as for other events.
Great theatre challenges us, inspires us, and moves us. It calls us to look at ourselves and at our place in the world, and to consider how we can best realize our fullest potential. Perhaps most critically, theatre teaches us. To that end, the goal of Major Arcana is theatre of the students, by the students, and for the students and Le Moyne community. Its goal is to provide students with the opportunity to participate in all areas of a theatrical production and to engage them in the theatrical community of Central New York. To accomplish this goal, students produce, direct, and manage all aspects of any Major Arcana production.

The Le Moyne Student Dance Company
Dance is a form of exercise – and self-expression. It has been called “the hidden language of the soul.” The members of Le Moyne Student Dance Company know this, and live by it. The dancers undertake a variety of styles, including jazz, modern and tap; create their own choreography; and hold public performances on campus. Their efforts are buoyed by the regular dance classes that are held at Le Moyne, and their artistry lifts up those around them.
Step is more than a form of dance. It’s a means of self-expression. The Dolphin Steppers use their entire bodies – from their feet to their hands to their voices – to convey what is on their minds and in their hearts. The Steppers are performers. But more than that, they are a family, part of a proud tradition of stepping that spans the globe.

Who’s got school spirit? The members of the Le Moyne College Dance Team sure do!

In addition to performing regularly at games, the team practices multiple times a week in the dance studio and gym. Come on and join us. Put a little pep in that step and show your love for the Green and Gold!
