Marist College Dance Team Welcomes Children for Dance Clinic

The Marist College Dance Team always looks forward to our children’s dance clinic each semester! We hold a clinic for both football and basketball season, inviting children from the local Hudson River Valley to be a Red Fox for a day. We have the children come for a 2 hour clinic where we teach them a dance that we perform at halftime of the Men’s basketball game. After the clinic we invite the dancers to join MCDT in the stands for the game!

This year our clinic was on February 10th from 4-6 before the Marist Men’s Basketball game at 7pm! We had 20 future Red Foxes join us this year. They were all so talented and enthusiastic! Our halftime performance was a definite crowd pleaser, receiving numerous compliments from our Athletics Department. The dancers also joined in on cheering on the Red Foxes in a close game against Rider. They had the opportunity to perform in some foul shots and sideline routines.

Our clinic ended with the Cosimo’s t-shirt toss in which the children got to throw the t-shirts! Overall, our clinic was a huge success! We definitely found some future Red Fox Dancers!
