The team practices four times a week for two hours.
These are all required:
All practices are mandatory. Being on the team is a full-time commitment.
We perform at all home football games. We also perform during halftime at selected home basketball games.
We would prefer to see all potential team members in person but if the tryout dates conflict with prior commitments, we do allow a video tryout. Contact coach Lexi Hanna for all the necessary elements to be included in the video, as well as a deadline.
We ask that everyone bring their own dance shoes and comfortable dance attire. We strongly suggest a sports bra/top and dance pants. We also expect everyone to look game-day ready (make-up, hair done nicely, etc.).
Everyone will be taught a dance consisting of the following elements: pom, jazz, and hip-hop. Technical skills must be performed and will either be done in a choreographed sequence or individually.
Technical elements required:
You will need to bring your insurance information and records from a recent physical. If you do not show proof of insurance and a current physical form, you will not be allowed to try out.
Summer commitments include special appearances, fundraisers and monthly workshops to run.
The cost to be on the team can run around $500. Most is due soon after tryouts.
We do not have scholarships available to squad members; however, we have numerous types of fundraising projects to help pay for certain dance team expenses.
Team members must complete at least 12 credits each semester and maintain a cumulative grade-point average of 2.00 or above.
We perform at games, but we also compete at the NCAA Division III Conference, state and national level.
