Bellarmine’s dance team to have free performance Saturday afternoon [Colleges]


Basketball isn’t the only competitive activity at Bellarmine. In preparation for national competition with the National Dance Alliance, the Bellarmine University dance team will showcase its full-costume “nationals routine” in a free public performance at Knights Hall at 4:00 p.m. this coming Saturday, March 31 (yes, before The Big Game).

“We will perform the routine once, solicit feedback from judges, and then perform the routine one more time,” says co-head coach Janine Klutka.

The team, which dances in an energetic mix of jazz, hip-hop and pom (cheerleading-inspired) styles, heads to Daytona Beach, Fla. April 11-15 for the national competition. The dancers took third place last year.

The performance is free and open to the public.
