2011-12 University of Minnesota Dance Team Announced

Jan. 26, 2012

The University of Minnesota Dance Team was selected Sunday May 1st from a panel of ten alumni, after an intense three days of auditions. The audition process included performing various styles of dance including jazz and pom, executing elite technical skills and conducting an interview with the coaching staff. Not only did the candidates prove themselves with their dancing ability but also impressed the coaching staff with their enthusiasm and desire to be a part of such an amazing program.

The 2011-2012 Team is excited and honored for the upcoming season and everything it has to offer.

We look forward to seeing Gopher Fans September 10th in TCF Bank Stadium.
