  • Military Officers and Social Officers

    The dance officer line is a leadership program that is designed to train returning members to lead by service in promotion of the dance team as a loving, supportive community. The officers work closely with directors and must be familiar with everything expected of a team member, cooperate with the directors 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.
