Chi Tau Epsilon (XTE) is a dance honor society which develops dance talent, the art of dancing, honors outstanding students in the field of dance and provides those students with the opportunity for further service in the field. Additionally, Chi Tau Epsilon will recognize the superior ability of performing and creative artists in dance at the University of Louisiana at Monroe (ULM) while promoting artistic activity and scholarly achievement in the field of dance. The Lambda Chapter of XTE was established by the Dance Department at the University of Louisiana at Monroe (ULM) in Spring 2012.
Chi Tau Epsilon was founded in 1967 at Texas Christian University’s School of Classical and Contemporary Dance. There are four other active chapters at this time: Texas Tech University, University of North Texas, Sam Houston State University and the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. With the establishment of the Lambda Chapter, it is the Dance Department’s desire to continue to unite forces among various dance programs in higher education in order to recognize and promote excellence, knowledge and investment in the field of dance.
