Tiger Girls Dance Team – Tiger Girls is a precision dance/drill team that promotes school spirit and generates enthusiasm for St. Agnes Academy. The Tiger Girls study and practice various levels of dance technique and styles while developing physical strength, flexibility, stamina, and coordination. The Tiger Girls perform at St. Agnes pep rallies, Strake Jesuit football games, St. Agnes and Strake Jesuit basketball games, two local competitions, and Spring Show. Auditions for Tiger Girls occur in April and each member attends a mandatory dance camp in the summer. All grade levels may audition. No previous dance training is required to audition. Practices are held in the morning on Monday through Thursday from 6:30 a.m. - 7:40 a.m. in the old gym during the school year. Tiger Girls will be eligible to earn a P.E. credit for membership.

Dance Officers – Dance Officers help the directors organize and lead the Tiger Girls Dance Team. All officers must be familiar with everything expected of a team member, cooperate with the director and other officers, maintain a sense of responsibility for the organization, and represent St. Agnes Academy and the Tiger Girls dance team in a positive manner. Each officer sets an example for her fellow teammates by demonstrating a positive attitude, striving for academic excellence, and setting a high standard for herself and others. Officers are selected by a panel of judges and through a team vote. Auditions occur in April. All officers are required to attend a leadership training camp in June.

Remix Dance Company – Advanced dancers may choose to audition for the Remix Dance Company which is an elite group of dancers that focus on cutting-edge dance styles and advanced ballet technique. Remix performs at special school events and compete at NDA Nationals in Orlando, Florida in March. A student must be entering grades 10-12 to audition. Each company member is required to attend a mandatory NDA camp in the summer. Dancers are chosen by team audition scores and by director recommendation. Remix dancers will be required to enroll in the Competitive/Advanced Dance Class and practice on occasional Saturdays. Remix dancers will earn a Fine Art credit for the course.
