We would love to have you as part of our dance family! Our program features dynamic dancers with a variety of backgrounds. Connect with Head Coach Lauren White to schedule a personalized campus visit and Q&A session with current members of the team.
Angelettes perform during all home and select away football games and men’s and women’s basketball games, as well as at local and out-of-town appearances and recruitment events, and much more.
All eligible dancers receive an annual academic scholarship of up to $1,000, and any current or incoming student meeting the criteria is welcome to attend an interest clinic or submit a qualifying video for consideration. (You must receive an invitation to attend auditions by participating in one of the invitational clinics or submitting a qualifying video.)
