    The word "orchesis," derived from the Greek word "orchestra," means the art or act of dancing." It began as a university dance club first organized at the University of Wisconsin-Madison during the academic year 1917-1918 by a group of students who wanted more opportunity to study dance than was possible in regular university classes. Orchesis is not a national organization but a name used by graduates of Wisconsin for their own dance groups as they began to teach in various sections of the United States.
