The University of Wisconsin-Fond du Lac dance team is starting the season with energetic attitudes and team spirit. Coached by Tracy Schneider, the team consists of eight talented girls.

The team will be performing at basketball games and other athletic events in the campus gymnasium. The team plans to entertain the crowds with the innovative routines that they are creating throughout the season. Members include: Alyssa Norenberg, Allison Doerr, Courtney Froehlich, Jennifer Schmidt, Jennifer Meress, Dawn Rogan, Aimee Gleason, Miranda Ernisee, Jessica Serwe and Lexi Schumacher.

School-related fundraisers are being considered, said Shumacher, as well as competing in dance competitions throughout Wisconsin. Funds would be used to purchase dance attire such as uniforms and shoes and help in the area of advertising and marketing.

Schneider, financial specialist at the campus Business Office, is an experienced coach who started dancing when she was in high school where she became a member of the cheerleading squad. Later, she coached cheerleading at Oakfield High School. This is her first year of dance team at the campus.

“It seems like we have a lot of good dancers so far. I think we’re going to stick it out and last the whole season,” Schneider said.

“Last year it started off with seven girls and ended with myself,” said Schumacher, who was a member of the 2006 team. “I really hope to see it go all through the year and have everyone stay involved,” she added.

“There seems to be a lot of interest and great ideas so far. All of the girls seem very eager to start practice and perform at as many games as possible. I can't wait to see how the season goes,” Doerr said.

Practices will be held every week on Wednesdays and Fridays, lasting about two hours in the Physical Education building. For more information about the dance team, contact Schneider at the Business Office.
