Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College will hold auditions for the 2014-2015 Perkette Dance Team on Thursday, March 6 at 3 p.m. and Saturday, March 15 at 9 a.m. in Malone Hall on the Perkinston Campus. Emphasis will be given to high kicks, marching and technique (turns, leaps, etc.).
Since 1952, the Perkettes have been an integral part of the Band of Gold and are a must-see fixture at football games. The 2013-2014 Perkettes dance squad brought home seven blue ribbons and also earned the Most Improved Award during the Universal Dance Association camp held at The University of Alabama this past year. They also have the opportunity to train with renowned choreographers each year in preparation for both camp and the new season.
Full tuition scholarships are available.
