September 17th - Registration Begins at 6:00PM, Tryouts will begin at 6:30PM
Registration: There will be a $25 registration fee for all participants which can be made in the form of cash or check made out to Duquesne Athletics with Dance Team in the memo! This is non-refundable once registered.
Attire: Please come in fitted attire nothing baggy! We will be learning both a jazz and hip hop routine as well as a down the floor segment, so wear whatever shoes you would like for the pertaining styles, going barefoot is fine as well! If you wanted to put on sneakers and pants for hip hop that would be acceptable but for jazz I want form fitted attire so I am able to see your lines! Preferably shorts and tank top, a midriff top is acceptable as well.
Hair/Make-up: You are expected to come in performance make-up and hair! For all the games you will dance with your hair down so I would strongly suggest that it was worn that way for auditions.
Bring: Bring water and a snack to keep your energy up, there are water fountains available at the facility as well if necessary!
With new costumes, cutting edge choreography and top of the line sponsors this year I promise to take this team to the next level. Over the last four years this program has built a reputation of a team of talented and beautiful dancers and I am so excited to bring the fans just what they have come to expect from the Dukettes and MORE!!

The team's main styles consist of Jazz and Hip Hop, but are infused with character, pom, Latin, modern, and video choreography. This dance team has the perfect balance of technically trained dancers that know how to entertain the crowd and are pursuing college degrees! The Duquesne University Dance Team is a group of women who uphold a high standard of professionalism and top notch entertainment on and off the basketball court. They also serve as ambassadors of Duquesne University, spreading our culture of pure determination, passion, fun, knowledge and excitement throughout the community.
We are constantly building upon the already solid Dukettes foundation and can't wait to see who will become part of the 2012-2013 team... ARE YOU NEXT?
