Dance Team

The Wartburg Dance Team is an organization that offers opportunities to continue one’s love for dance. There are two seasons offered, fall and winter. In the fall, dancers will perform at halftime of the home football games, a pep rally, and at the Iowa State Dance Championship. In the winter season, performances will occur at the halftime of women and men’s basketball games. The styles performed will include kick, pom, jazz, and co-ed. The team practices on average six to eight hours per week and can be incorporated into almost any schedule. The team coordinates bonding activities, which help strengthen the unity of the team. Some of the favorite activities are tie dying, cookouts, and secret sister gift exchanges. These activities are what really make us a family.

Financially, the dance team is supported by the Wartburg Student Senate. They will provide funds for many expenses, but in order to cover all costs there is a $100 minimum amount each dancer needs to raise. Other items each dancer is expected to buy are shoes, tights, shorts, team pants and shirt, and a few optional items are offered.

The Wartburg Dance Team performs at most home football and basketball games. They also compete at the Iowa State Dance/Drill Team Championships each year. Come watch and cheer them on. Look for schedules for the football and basketball teams on
