Welcome to the official online home of the Texas Aggie Dance Team!
The Texas Aggie Dance Team was founded in 1990 as a student organization. During the 1995-1996 school year, the Aggie Dance Team became a support/spirit group for Texas A&M athletics. Since then, the dance team has become one of Aggieland's brightest traditions. The team consists of approximately 20 students that wish to continue their dance careers while entertaining the sport fans at A&M men's and women's basketball games. The dance team is under its second director, Mrs. Courtney Mills.
What We Do...
The team has become a support group for the Texas A&M men's and women's basketball teams. They perform half-time and timeout routines at all home games, and travel to post season tournaments. In addition to performing at all of the men's and women's home basketball games, the Texas Aggie Dance Team has performed at professional sports arenas during Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks, and Dallas Desperados games. The team also performs at Bryan-College Station Community events and high school dance competitions.
Members of the team practice 10-15 hours a week during the normal school year. Practices consist of technique training, learning choreography and rehearsing for performances. Like other athletic teams, the Texas Aggie Dance Team uses weight and cardiovascular training for better strength and endurance. Attendance is mandatory at all performances and practices.
The Texas Aggie Dance Team comes second only to academics. Texas A&M University is an exemplary academic institution, and our members traditionally are able to balance school and practice very well. In fact, several of our members hold above a 3.5 GPR and have won numerous academic awards while representing the University as Texas Aggie Dance Team members.
