WELCOME TO THE ATHENS DANCE TEAM!
HIGH SCHOOL DANCE TEAM
ABOUT ATHENS DANCE
The Athens Dance Teams perform during pregame and sidelines during Athens Football season and during halftime of Athens Basketball games. 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 the teams also can be found at pep rallies, parades and mini camp. 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 dance team, contact sponsor and dance coach Kristie Murphree.
