Whether in the dance or weight room, the CEU Eagle Dancers can usually be found somewhere in the BDAC. The newest dance routine, a quasi-military piece titled Aphrodite, was performed at the last basketball game of the season and according to Eagle Dance Coach Melissa Anast, it has gotten the biggest crowd response.
Under the direction of Anast, who aslo chairs the dance department, the Eagle Dancers performed at every men and women’s basketball home game. Varying three to five hours of practice a week, the dancers work together as a team and are 100 percent dedicated and supportive of each other, according to Anast. Eagle Dancers’ Captain Haley McCracken feels the team this year is amazing and has gone well.
This year’s Eagle Dancers Review will be in the B-DAC on Thursday March 26 at 6 p.m. General admission is $7; students, faculty, and staff admission is $5 and all children under the age of 3 are free. All proceeds will go to purchasing costumes and attending camp for the upcoming year.
New this year to the Eagle Dancers responsibility is working with the cheerleaders to cheer during the rivalry games. Although some women were hesitant at first, the idea was soon embraced. McCracken says both teams get along and cooperate. She hopes the tradition will continue in following years.
Tryouts for the 2009-2010 Eagle Dance Team are set for 10 a.m. April 4, at the BDAC. Information about requirements and what is expected can be found online at ceu.edu.
Anast feels the dance team keeps improving over the years and is hopeful for next year’s team.
