The CCGA Dance Team is in its second consecutive year at the College of Coastal Georgia. The members decided to kick-off their 2015-2016 year performing at Coastal’s Breast Cancer Awareness “Hot Pink Party”.
The dance team’s participation in this event was to show their recognition and support for those who have fought against breast cancer and the families and friends who fought along with them.
The dance team, along with it’s advisor, Professor of Physical Education Teresa Peeples, andcoach, fitness instructo Ronique Thomas, showed off their moves and danced the day away on the patio of the Student Activity Center.
Dance Team President Ashlee Benton says, “The College can expect more performances, new routines, new faces and a new outlook.”
According to Benton, Mariners can expect to see the team in action at men and women’s basketball games and other events on the Brunswick campus and community.

Benton says the teams purpose is drawn from true college spirt.
“The goal of the dance team is to show Mariner Pride, put on a show for the student body and most importantly have fun!” she says.
The club was formed as a way to be more involved in campus life and support our college in a positive way.
“I want the members to be able to come into dance practice and dance their stress away,” Benton said. “When I proposed the idea of the dance team I thought of a strong bond between the members of the team, a bond that will hopefully last a lifetime.
The members have been working hard on their routines and hope everyone enjoys their 2015 -2016 season.
