Each member has the opportunity to represent the University of Washington in a positive light, to put forth her best effort at every engagement, and to create and maintain a level of excellence and professionalism throughout the year.

The energetic Dance Team consists of members who pass tryouts and have three years of dance experience in jazz, hip hop, and other styles. They are proficient in skills such as double and triple pirouettes, grand jetes, russians/second leaps, turns in second, switch leaps, and basic ballet and breakdancing technique. The team participates in a variety of performances throughout the year. Past performances have included basketball and volleyball game halftimes, the Mr. and Miss Greek competitions, and the Dance Students Association's Influx shows. In 2013 they plan to attend the USA dance competition.
