Alcorn’s Golden Girls will host Rhythm In Motion Dance Camp
The Alcorn State University Golden Girls are gearing up to pass their dancing skills to aspiring majorettes at their upcoming summer camp.
The dance group will be hosting the Rhythm In Motion Dance Camp for girls ages 6-18 August 8 in the E. E. Simmons Gymnasium (Old Gym) from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. The camp will be open to the public. Participants are required to pay a $30 camp fee. Only cash and money order payments will be accepted. The deadline for submitting applications is July 31. Those who pay their fee by July 31 will receive a T-shirt.
The camp participants will be divided into groups according to age and will learn marching techniques, poise, posture, stand routines, field routines, and other dance formations from the Golden Girls. The camp will end with the participants showcasing what they learned throughout the day.
Senobia Rogers, who serves as the Golden Girls’ dance coach, sees the camp as an opportunity for the Golden Girls to not only share their love of dancing with the young ladies, but also serve as mentors to them.
“We were inspired to do a dance camp because we know there are many young ladies who look up to us,” said Rogers. “We love interacting with them. Not only do the Golden Girls get to showcase what we do, but they will also serve as mentors. That is something that all children need. This is an opportunity for us to take out time with the youth and share what we absolutely love to do with them.”
Rogers hopes to attract more youth for future dance camps by displaying a positive image of the Golden Girls and the University.
“We work extremely hard to represent Alcorn in a classy manner and we will do all that is necessary to make that happen. We look forward to future interactions with the youth.”
