DeHority residents were able to volunteer for the team at one of the residence hall meetings near the beginning of the year.
This year, the theme for Homecoming as a whole is "The Greatest Show on Turf," so the DeHority team decided to go with a circus theme for their Air Jam routine.
Danielle Cook, a sophomore mathematical science major, helped choreographed the dancing that will go with the music, which is a mix CD from a list of approved songs.
“I’ve told the team that when we get off the stage, I want people to say, ‘That was DeHo? That was awesome!’ I’m really excited about it. I think it’s going to be phenomenal,” Cook said.
After working with the DeHority team for the past two weeks I couldn't be more proud of them,” team leader Casey Middleton, a junior English major, said. “They've done an excellent job so far and I'm excited for everyone attending Air Jam to see the finished routine.”
The team has been preparing for the event since Sept. 14. The members meet every day except Friday and Saturday for one to two hours.
“It’s been an intense rehearsal process,” Emily Naville, a freshman music education major, said. “It’s totally worth it though."
