Dance Team Headed to Sugar Bowl

November 6, 2002

Eight members of Bentley College's Dance Team are headed to New Orleans next month to perform at the Nokia Sugar Bowl.

The Bentley dancers will perform a jazz routine during halftime with approximately 150 other coeds from across the United States. This is the first time the Dance Team has been invited to perform at a nationally televised event. The Sugar Bowl, part of college football's Bowl Championship Series (BCS), will be aired live from the Louisiana Superdome on ABC at 8:30 p.m. (EST) on January 1, 2003.

The dancers have been busy hosting bake sales, car washes and raffles in order to raise half of the $8000 in expenses they expect to incur during the trip. They will receive their Sugar Bowl routine later this month and will have just a few weeks to rehearse before the performance.

"We have never participated in anything like this before," said graduate student Amy Eisenberg, a member of the team. "We really had to put an enormous amount of work into this to make it happen."

The Dance Team can be seen performing at most Bentley home basketball games. They will also perform at the New England Collegiate Dance Collaborative on November 23 at Boston University.
