St. Clair County Community College is pleased to announce a collegiate level Skippers Dance Team beginning in the winter 2020 semester.
Through a SC4 Athletics partnership with the Huron Physical Arts Center (HPAC) in downtown Port Huron, the team will be coached by Laurie Charron, owner and head coach of the State, Regional and National Champion Starlites Competitive Dance Team organization.
“We’re pleased to offer this new opportunity for students,” said SC4 Director of Athletics Dale Vos. “Many high schools and colleges offer dance teams, and this partnership with Laurie and the Huron Physical Arts Center provides another great way for more students to become actively involved on campus and continue their passion for dance at a collegiate level right here in our region.”
The Skippers Dance team is open to any SC4 student who wishes to audition. The team will start training in January and is expected to perform at SC4 basketball games this season, as well as possibly during the NJCAA National Women’s Basketball Championship at SC4 in March.
Future plans include the opportunity to compete against other college and university teams in the open division at competitive dance events next year.
“We have many dancers in our community who are always looking for more opportunities to do what they love,” Charron said. “We’re thrilled to partner with SC4 on this new collegiate-level dance team.”
Interested students can call Charron at 810-984-5861 for further information about this new opportunity.
