University of Nebraska at Kearney Dance Team members were recently selected for this fall, according to Lee Ann Amm, Dance Team sponsor and UNK assistant director for Admissions.
Selection was based on competitive auditions. Girls auditioning for the team had to perform two dance routines–one that was provided to them on the day of the tryouts and a self-choreographed 30-second routine. A panel of judges, all of whom have backgrounds in dance, evaluated the performances. The tryouts were open to all current and incoming UNK students.
Amm said, “Overall, I think they are an outstanding group of young women. They do all their own choreography and practices without any financial support, all because of their love of dance.”
The UNK Dance Team performs during half-time at the men’s and women’s home basketball games.
