Mission Statement (What Is Your Club / Organization About?)
The Dance Team’s purpose is to further interest and development in dance by performing throughout the school year. Students will have an opportunity to learn and perfect various skills involved in jazz, contemporary, and hip-hop dance. We strive to include technical,
creative and social aspects of dance while encouraging individual participation.
Who Are the Leaders of The Organization?
The President of the MU Dance Team is Olivia D’Aprile. The Vice President is Julia Kepple. The Treasurer is Renee Crossan and the Secretary is Janelle Sentiwany. The fundraising chair is
Bethany Miller, the philanthropy/community service chair is Alyssa Gantz, and the public relations chair is Christa Benshoff. All members of the MU Dance Team are heavily involved in
all fundraisers and philanthropy events.
Why Should Someone Join Your Organization?
We are consistently supporting and pushing each other to grow to become the best dancers we can be. We are more than just dancers, we are a family! At the end of the day it’s more than just dance for us. MU Dance Team members are friends inside and outside of the dance studio. We all share a common passion for dance, which bonds even stronger friendships within the team.
What Do You Do Within Your Organization?
The Dance Team participates in the annual Millersville Homecoming Parade, various fundraisers and charity events within the community, and Relay for Life. Dance Team also performs at all home basketball and football games and competes nationally every year in the Dance Team Union College Classic Competition!
What Do You Hope Your Members Get Out of Being Part of The Organization?
We hope that members find a positive environment where they can share their passion and love for dance. We hope members form friendships with people who have a similar love for dance on the team. MU Dance Team hopes members positively grow in their technique and skills while learning new choreography each week.
