The McKendree PomCats are a talented and dedicated group of dancers who support McKendree
through their spirit, skill, and presence at campus events. As members of the Marching
Bearcat Band, the dance team maintains a rigorous schedule throughout the year, performing
at football games, parades, events and band functions as required during the fall.
Practices and performances continue into the spring, when the team appears at home
basketball games and Team Dance Illinois Collegiate competitions.
Practices are held 3 times a week on campus, which include learning new choreography, practicing technique, and working on strength, endurance and flexibility. Because of the large amount of routines performed every year, practices are mandatory and classes/other activities should be scheduled around dance commitments. Fundraising will take place throughout the year to keep costs low, to supplement our University funding. The team attends a collegiate-level camp in the summer, and part of the Marching Bearcat Band Camp before school begins.
For more information about the dance team, please contact head coach, Katy Czerwonka, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also be sure to check out the fan page on Facebook for up to date information, photos, and videos!
