The Georgia Tech Goldrush Dance Team performs at all home football, men’s basketball, and women’s basketball games. They also travel to select away games and post-season tournaments. Additionally, Goldrush members will also have opportunity to represent Georgia Tech at NDA College Nationals. Goldrush members prioritize their technical dance skills alongside their education, sororities, and club activities, all of which foster their ability to serve as positive role models on campus and in the Atlanta community.
The team practices three times a week in the evening on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Additional rehearsals are added as needed. Any dancer missing multiple games and/or practices is subject to dismissal from the squad.
