The Illinettes Dance Team
The Illinettes Dance Team represents the entire State of Illinois as some of the most visible ambassadors for the University. The proud tradition of the Illinettes is carried on by a 28 member precision dance team that specializes in pom, jazz, and hip hop and performs at all Illinois home football and men's and women's basketball games. In addition to spectacular performances before Memorial Stadium and State Farm Center crowds, the Illinettes perform annually at the Chicago United Center, the St. Louis Scottrade Center, Soldier Field and a Chicago Bears halftime Show as well as additional performances with the Nation’s Premier College Marching Band – the Marching Illini! The Illinettes will be traveling to New York City in November 2015 to perform in the prestigious Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade! Each Illinette member must meet the expectations of being a skilled and talented athlete as well as being a well rounded student who embraces the ILLINOIS tradition! We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to make a decision that will change your life forever. The Illinettes Dance Team is an experience you will never forget!
