ABOUT ATHENS DANCE
The Athens Dance Teams, known as "The Eaglettes," peform at Athens Basketball games during the season. There are two teams, high school (grades 9-12) and middle school (grades 7-8). Auditions are held in the spring of each school year. In addition to performing at basketball games, the teams also compete in local and regional dance competitions. The dance team is a great way to get involved, show school spirit and have a fun. We believe dance develops both the body and the mind through building strength, work ethic, confidence and character. For more information about The Eaglettes, contact sponsor and dance coach Kristie Murphree.
