The Illinettes Dance Team
The Illinettes Dance Team is the official dance team of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and are officially part of the Marching Illini, "The Nation's Premier College Marching Band." This team of 28 girls specializes in pom and jazz and performs at all home football, men's and women's basketball games as well as other various university functions. In addition to spectacular performances before Memorial Stadium and Assembly Hall crowds, the Illinettes are part of every facet of the Marching Illini and travel to at least one away game per football season along with any post season bowl games. Since the team dances a new halftime drill and performance at each home game as well as sideline routines throughout each Fighting Illini game, it is a very fast-paced routine and drill learning squad. With approximately eight hours of Marching Illini rehearsal in the fall term and six hours of additional dance practice a week, the Illinettes Dance Team is a large time commitment. However, the Illinettes still find time to excel academically as well as participate in various social, philanthropic, and community events.
