The Dance Team is comprised of 22 girls who perform at games, pep rallies, special events and competitions. They excel in a variety of dance styles including hip hop, contemporary, jazz and lyrical. In 2010 they took 2nd place in the small hip hop division and 3rd place in the large lyrical division at USA Dance Nationals in Anaheim. This year they will be competing again in hip hop, contemporary, and character.
