Marist Dance Team

The Marist Dance Team is a student-run sports club focused on promoting spirit at Marist College. The team actively participates in the Marist community, dancing at all football and basketball home games. They perform during halftime and time outs of each game, as well as engage in Marist spirit traditions along the sidelines, such as the fight song and band accompaniment.

The Dance Team travels with the men's and women's basketball teams to the MAAC tournament at the end of each season in March. The team also supports the Red Foxes at the NCAA tournament if either the men's or women's basketball teams earn a bid. Members of the Dance Team have accompanied the women's basketball team to the NCAA Tournaments in California, Ohio, Louisiana, North Carolina, Florida, Maryland and Iowa.

Each summer, the Marist Dance Team attends a Universal Dance Association summer camp in August. The team has captured numerous awards over the years including trophies for high scores based on individual performances, as well as a recent trophy for the Most Improved Program.

In addition to attending home games, the Dance Team competes at various local competitions each winter.

Auditions
Auditions for the team take place biannually: at the beginning of fall semester, and the end of spring semester. These auditions consist of warm-ups, across the floor, learning a routine and performing the learned routine two at a time before the captains. Those who audition for the Dance Team should have multiple years of prior dance experience.
