BEGAN WHEN LPU CAVITE WAS ESTABLISHED IN 2008 AND FEATURED AT GMA 7’S MORNING SHOW “UNANG HIRIT”, WHEREIN THE SCHOOL FORMED A GROUP OF STUDENT WHO WILL PARTICIPATE AND PERFORM FOR THAT SPECIAL DAY. THROUGH THEIR EFFORTS, THE LPU CAVITE MANAGEMENT DECIDED TO MAKE THEM THE OFFICIAL PERFORMING GROUP OF THE UNIVERSITY. THE COMPANY WAS FIRST CALLED AS THE “LPU DANCE TROUPE” THAT FOCUSES MORE ON FOLK DANCE, HIP HOP AND BALLROOM. ON 2011, THE MANAGEMENT AMEND THE NAME LPU DANCE TROUPE TO “LPU CAVITE DANCE TROUPE” TO MAKE A DISTINCTION BETWEEN MANILA AND CAVITE’S DANCE GROUP. IT BECAME “LPU FOOTWORX” AS THE GROUP DECIDED TO CHANGE IT IN 2012. NOW, THE GROUP USES “LPU CAVITE DANCE COMPANY” AS THEIR OFFICIAL NAME. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE COMPANY IS TO DISCOVER, DEVELOP AND HONE STUDENT ARTISTS WHO ARE PASSIONATE IN THE FIELD OF DANCE AND CREATIVE MOVEMENTS. IN 2013, THE COMPANY INVITED CHOREOGRAPHERS AND TEACHERS FOR BALLET AND CONTEMPORARY DANCE TO PROVIDE DIFFERENT VARIETIES OF DANCES TO BE ABLE TO ADAPT DIFFERENT VARIETIES OF DANCES, AND ADDED TO THE COMPANY’S REPERTOIRE. THROUGHT THE INITIATIVE OF THE PREVIOUS DIRECTOR OF THE COMPANY, LCDC BECAME OPEN TO ANY GENRES OF DANCES TO PROVIDE THE NEEDS OF THE STAKEHOLDER AND THE UNIVERSITY.
