Thunder Dance Team
High Voltage members are excited to begin their third season at Trine. The squad will be composed of five returners and three freshmen. As it prepares to perform for home football and basketball games, the team will also be getting ready for its second competition season, where it plans to compete nationally at the CanAm Nationals in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
To prepare for the upcoming season, High Voltage attended preseason camp at Otterbein University where it placed first in Team Dances and Overall Top Performer. Four of the eight dancers earned All-American honors as well as senior Mackenzie Bird being recognized as Best Dancer.
In addition to the competitive agenda, the team looks forward to volunteering in the community as well as supporting another winning Thunder football season at all home games. As fall comes to a close, the dancers will be ever present at winter sports including men’s and women’s basketball contests. The women are filled with new energy, a passion to dance and are looking forward to supporting Thunder athletics.
