Today we’d like to introduce you to The Morganettes Dance Team.
Hello Morganettes Dance Team, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
The Morganettes Dance Team was founded in September of 1998 on the campus of Morgan State University.
The team specializes in hip-hop, but also trains and performs other styles of dance, including but not limited to, lyrical, jazz, contemporary, and more. For the last 24 years, the team has provided dance entertainment for Morgan State University, surrounding communities, and other colleges and universities.
Today, the team consists of 20 auditioned female dancers who share a passion for dance and entertainment.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The drive has been great and rewarding, but the road hasn’t always been smooth.
Over the years, we have struggled with having enough funding for uniforms, travel, and scholarships. Alongside fundraising, the dancers each pay an annual fee to cover the costs for the season.
However, you can imagine the stress that puts on college students. In recent years, we have collected donations that have supplemented and sustained the team.
As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
We mentor our members through dance to teach and practice time management, physical and mental fitness, and life and academic skills. Our core values are discipline, perseverance, and sisterhood.
The Morganettes are known for putting on an eye-catching, high-energy performance, and for leaving everything we have on the dance floor. Whether we are on the court, on stage, in competition, or in class, you are guaranteed a memorable show.
Let’s talk about our city – what do you love? What do you not love?
