Delta Dancers

dd2012

Group Information

The Delta Dancers are the official dance team of MS Delta Community College and represent the oldest dance line on the MDCC campus. This feature group performs with the MDCC Marching Band at football games, at campus pep rallies, basketball games, campus events, community festivals, parades, area high schools, and a "Spring Revue" consisting of various types of dance and music. As campus and community service projects, the Delta Dancers participate in fundraising and conduct a dance camp for children. All Delta Dancers receive a FULL SCHOLARSHIP covering room, tuition, and meals, as well as, class credit for participation on the team. Commitment is for 1 full academic year. The season begins during the summer with several practices in June and July and scheduled practices and camp in August. It is required that dancers reside in the residence halls and maintain at least a 2.0 GPA in a minimum of 12 hours of academic, health science, or career-technical courses each semester.

Try-Out Information

The Delta Dancers consist of a very talented group of young women from around the Delta and the state who are chosen each spring in a special audition. Try-outs are open to any student who has been accepted to MS Delta Community College, or is an entering freshman or transfer student. Previous studio or team dance experience is highly recommended but not required. The Dance department offers a "Delta Dancer Prep Clinic" in the spring prior to try-outs. This clinic is not required to audition, but would be very beneficial to recruits as required technique is reviewed, information on the program is distributed, and the audition routine is taught, so that recruits have the opportunity to practice and perfect it prior to try-outs. For participation in the clinic and for auditions, dancers should wear dance attire and dance shoes. Tennis shoes are not allowed. The Delta Dancers also accept male students who perform with and without the girls in select variety routines for special events. Male dancers do not have to have prior dance experience or know any technique. Auditions for males will consist of an interview session.
