    About the Pantherettes


    • The Pantherette Dance Team, supports the school with performances at football and basketball games, and competes in local/area competitions as well as other guest appearances and functions. They also try to have a fall and spring show.  Practices with Choreographers or Technicians may begin in May or at Summer Camp in June or July, and Summer Practice in August.  
    • Team Member required Dates for Camp & Summer, Practice Expectations, & the Financial Obligation as well as other details will be shared at the Parent Zoom Meeting - March 22nd, Monday, evening at 6:30 PM.   A link will be posted on this webpage prior to this Required Parent Meeting for students wanting to tryout for the dance team.  
    • The team practices after school to prepare for these performances.  Most practices end at 5:30 and sometimes 6:00 so that they can establish spacing on the football field or basketball court which ever may be the need.  The football field and or gym time are not available to the dance team until after 5:00 PM When school first starts, there is no practice on the first 2 days after school.  
    • Practices when first working on new dances may be all week especially when preparing for their first performance ot the year or the weeks preceding competition and other performances. As the team improves, they will practice fewer days. Military Officers and Social Officers have the expectation to put in more time than the team.  Military Officers have more responsibility and with this comes additional practice time.  For example: during football season the team will perform on different nights - 7th Grade is on one night and 8th Grade is on a different night.


    VERY IMPORTANT - Academics!

    • Grades are very important in this program....
    • If passing classes has been difficult, please really think about this before trying out.
    • No Pass No Play-Rule applies to our Dance Team
