Transcript of Ethnography; Gold Dusters Dance Team

By: Caitlyn Young UNC Charlotte Gold Dusters Dance Team The Gold Dusters is a group of girls who not only love to dance and perform, but also enjoy helping their community. The dance team performs at basketball games and next year, they will perform at the football games as well. Although they aren't considered an official sports team yet, the girls are still without a doubt athletes. What do they do? What are they? Practice Three days a week, the dancers have to be at practice at 5:30 AM until 7:30 AM. Practice is held in the SAC in the aerobics room. From 5:30-6, they run anywhere from one mile to three miles. This is to build the girls cardio and stamina as well as keep them in shape. After their morning run in the arena, the team goes into the aerobics room to get ready to stretch and warm up for their dancing portion of practice. During practice, the team practices across the flooor skills, sidelines for games, and halftime dances that are performed at games. Additional Workouts On the two days of the week that there is no dance practice, there is still team workouts. Workouts are required to build strength in the girls individualy as well as keep each of them in good shape. For workouts, more running is to be done as well as other strength exercises focusing on the abs, legs and arms. Workouts last anywhere last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. Though the girls end up being tired and sore, the workouts are good for them and pay off in the end Interviews Danielle Terrell:
