Impulse Dance Force

Impulse Dance Force was founded in the Fall of 2004 by UB Alumni Samantha Sorrentino and Jaime Scheff.

Impulse is ran by students and functions much like a dance studio does. Every week we host numerous classes and at the end of the Fall and Spring semesters we put on a showcase for our friends and families. Styles of dance taught include jazz, ballet, pointe, tap, contemporary, modern, lyrical, hip-hop, and more! We welcome dancers of all skill levels! In addition, throughout the semester we host several social events and community service events – all great ways to meet your fellow IDF members and even help your community!
