Simpson Dance

The Simpson Dance Team is a competitive and fun team made up of hardworking and passionate individuals who share their love of the sport. The team performs at all home football and basketball games and competes at several competitions including the ISDTA Championships at Wells Fargo Arena against other Iowa colleges and the NDA Collegiate Nationals in Daytona Beach, FL. Throughout the school year these girls are involved in multiple activities such as Kids Dance Clinics, Race for the Cure, "Yell Like Hell" Pep Rally, Annual Spring Show, and a variety of fundraisers.  At Simpson, the spirit squads are an extension of the athletic department—it’s exciting for team members to be involved in something they love at the collegiate level.
