Skippers Dance Team Established

St. Clair County Community College (SC4) has announced a collegiate level Skippers Dance Team that will begin in the winter 2020 semester.

Through a SC4 Athletics partnership with the Huron Physical Arts Center (HPAC) in downtown Port Huron, the team will be coached by Laurie Charron, owner and head coach of the State, Regional and National Champion Starlites Competitive Dance Team organization.

SC4 Director of Athletics Dale Vos said the college is “pleased to offer this new opportunity” for students as many high schools and colleges offer dance teams. Vos said, “this partnership with Laurie and the Huron Physical Arts Center provides another great way for more students to become actively involved on campus and continue their passion for dance at a collegiate level right here in our region.”

The Skippers Dance team is open to any SC4 student who wishes to audition. The team will start training in January and is expected to perform at SC4 basketball games this season, as well as possibly during the NJCAA National Women’s Basketball Championship at SC4 in March. Future plans include the opportunity to compete against other college and university teams in the open division at competitive dance events next year.
