About the Illini Dance Team

The Illini Dance Team serves as ambassadors to the school by working various campus and community service events. The Illini Dance Team has the privilege to work closely with the spirited co-ed University of Illinois Cheerleading squad. Together we work towards our primary goals of representing the school and supporting our athletes through performance.

Not only does the Illini Dance Team perform on the sidelines at home football games and men’s and women’s basketball games, but they participate in the UDA College Nationals every January in Florida in both Jazz & Hip Hop. We're extremely grateful to be part of something that is not only known on Illinois' campus, but also around the community and nationally. Thanks to everyone who supports the Illini Dance Team.
