Dance Floor Theory Student Leadership Training

DFT Leadership Logo







Just like on a dance floor, every college experiences varying levels of engagement between those fully involved (student leaders) and those lurking on the edge (apathetic students). The same tactics to create successful social change on a dance floor – connections, relevancy, models of success, and motivation – also work to increase engagement within any college. DFT provides student leaders and advisors a new model for creating community, increasing student engagement, and fostering a culture of retention.


Outline a new framework for understanding community apathy and engagement.

Unify stakeholders to view the problem and solution through the same prism and share a common language.
