Mission Statement

The purpose of the South Dakota State University Dance Team is to inspire school spirit and cheer on the SDSU Jackrabbits at football and basketball games. We strive for each one of us to better ourselves – technically as dancers, academically as students, and personally as individuals. We motivate and push our teammates to become stronger dancers by competing against other college dance teams and representing SDSU at the national level.

WHo we are

The SDSU Dance Team is composed of about 20 talented dancers who appear at every home football and basketball game for both the men’s and women’s teams, along with Hobo Day events, parades, One Day for State, State-a-thon, Night to Shine Brookings, and other events across the community! The team also travels with the football and basketball teams when they appear at Summit League playoffs. The team competes at the National Dance Association’s national competition in Daytona Beach, Florida, in both jazz and pom each spring. In the 2021 season, our pom routine took home 2nd place and jazz took 5th place, both in the D1 division. To prepare for each season, we attend the NDA camp where we compete for a partially paid bid to nationals and learn routines to showcase at our campus appearances. Each member dedicates 18+ hours each week to practices, workouts, games, and appearances, all while maintaining superior academic standing. 

Help support our team

Since the SDSU Dance Team is a self-funded organization, we are responsible for all of our expenses. By donating to the SDSU Dance Team, you will be helping us pay for choreography, uniforms, travel expenses, and competition fees. The average cost per dancer each year is about $2,000, if not raised through fundraisers. Your support to our team allows us to continue to support our school year-round and do what we love!


Those whose donations are greater than $100 will receive an honorable mention on our social media pages. Our highest donor will also receive a t-shirt signed by the team, along with an individualized honorable mention.

We greatly appreciate all your support! If you can't support financially, you can still help our team exponentially by sharing this page and following our social media on Instagram, twitter, and Facebook.

Thank you, and GO JACKS!
