The MSU Dance Team is hosting its spring clinic for college and high school dancers from 8-10 p.m., Wednesday, March 21, at the IM Circle building located at the corner of W. Circle Drive and Kalamazoo Street on MSU’s campus.

Designed for those interested in auditioning for the Dance Team, the clinic is a great way to meet team members, and learn choreography and technical requirements for the upcoming Dance Team auditions.

The Dance Team performs before sellout crowds at MSU basketball games at the Breslin Center. There is a $10 fee for clinic participants; registration begins at 7:45 p.m.

Dancers will learn a short routine, similar to the one that the Dance Team performs at time-outs during basketball season and practice dance technique.

“The clinic provides a great chance to get a workout, have fun and meet other dancers,” said team member Stephanie Estes. “Dancers of all skill levels are welcome to attend.”

The clinic will include a warm-up, brief technique session and a hip-hop/jazz routine.

Dancers are advised to wear comfortable attire; dance shoes and tennis shoes are acceptable.

The university funds the Dance Team and pays for such expenses as camp fees and uniform costs, said Estes. Fundraising events like the clinic will help with the team’s travel and competition expenses during the Universal Dance Association National Championships.
