Tamegonit Lodge Dance Team Performances and Service

The Tamegonit Lodge Dance Team has performed for many different groups in Scouting for its existence as a Team.  In addition to the performances the Dance Team does for the many Order of the Arrow functions they serve, the Dance Team is available for events ranging from Pack Blue and Gold's to District Activities to Bear Camp.  The Dance Team is willing to work with anyone to make a performance available to Scouts!

The members of the Dance Team provide these performances free of charge, donating their time and talents to those that schedule a visit from the Dance Team.  Members of the Dance Team have donated tens of thousands of hours of performance time to enhance your programs!

The Dance Team is one of the most active and visible committees within the lodge.  Though there are many members on the Dance Team, there is always room for more young men interested in participating on the Dance Team.  To get involved, contact Sharon Mitchell, Tamegonit Lodge Dance Team Adviser, to share your interest in becoming involved in the Dance Team.

Away from performances, the Dance Team constructs and/or repairs its own attire and practices on a regular basis to learn the dances and improve our performances.  There is a strong group of youth and adults who support the Dance Team and we look forward to your becoming one of the members of the Tamegonit Lodge Dance Team!
