About DePaul Dance:

The DePaul Dancers are a spirit team consisting of 10 -20 talented students.  Primarily, DePaul Dance performs at all Men’s and Women’s Basketball home games at both McGrath-Phillips Arena in Lincoln Park and Allstate Arena in Rosemont, IL.   The dancers play a vital role in boosting school spirit from the sidelines and entertaining the crowd with award winning routines.  In addition, the DePaul Dancers perform at various campus events, participate in fundraising activities, partake in philanthropic activities and compete in collegiate dance competitions.

Competition is not our priority; it is a goal that we will work towards after the team has achieved excellence on the sideline and in the classroom. Each year the squad will prepare routines to perform during games, clinics and other appearances as they arise.

During the 2012-2013 seasons, the DePaul Dancers and Cheerleaders participated in several campus and community outreach activities in the Chicago area. Below is a list of all external events the spirit teams performed at and volunteered:

  • Festival of Lights Parade – Michigan Ave., Chicago
  • Bud Biliken Parade
  • Real Life Recess
  • Chicago Marathon - Susan G. Komen
  • DemonTHON Kickball
  • United Spirit Athletics
  • Clark Street Spooktacular
  • Hot Chocolate 15K/5K

Dance Team involvement begins with summer camp and extends through the post-season basketball tournaments in March.  Check out past DePaul Dance routines HERE. Interested students may email for further information.
