The University of Akron Dance Team is comprised of 16 dancers who perform at every home game for football and men's and women's basketball. As a part of Zips' Athletics, the dance team is here to promote school spirit and school pride. As student-athletes, the first responsibility is the success of each dancer in her academic career. The second responsibility is to improve and develop each student-athlete as a dancer and a responsible, mature adult.
Our purpose is to provide exceptional entertainment at each home game and lead the crowd in cheers. We are to raise the level of fan support and lead in a positive way for all of our Zips' athletics teams.
We also serve as public relations ambassadors of intercollegiate athletics and the University of Akron. Our responsibility is to hold ourselves to the highest standard and uphold the goals and ideals of the University.
