Meet the Mississippi Riverkings Dance Team

Hockey season is underway for the Mississippi Riverkings at the Landers Center, and if you are looking for a fun family friendly environment then these hockey games are for you.

The Mississippi Riverkings Dancers (or Ice Angels as they are sometimes called) add to the overall Riverkings experience by performing several routines and keeping fans engaged during every home game.

The best part about being on a dance team is what you accomplish as a group.  You put so much hard work into practices, and to be able to go out there and show them what you have got at the end of everything is really rewarding.

 It is pretty hard to become a member of the dance team.  You have to have some type of technique and you have to be able to move.

Dancing for the Mississippi Riverkings makes me feel like I am a team.  We do a lot of team bonding because we like to go out and have fun.  Sometimes we go out and have dinner together, and sometimes we go out and dance after we are done performing.

 First and foremost,  if you want to make it on this dance team you have to be a good dancer, be flexible, and have rhythm.  If you do not have rhythm you cannot make this dance team.

  This is my first year dancing, and it can be hard to juggle everything, but it is just something that I am going to have to do.  I love dancing, and I really want to dance for either LSU or Ole Miss next year.

   Before a performance I put hair extensions in.  It is not too long, only about 16 inches, but that is what I do beforehand.

I like to be a part of the community.  This is a chance to be a part of a community and I like that.  The tickets are affordable, it is family oriented, and everyone can be involved.  Plus you get to see us perform.

It can be stressful at times, but overall it is fun.  I get to finally contribute my own ideas, and take the other girls ideas to make something special.

We condition every time we practice for an hour, and we condition on our own as well.  We do everything from sit ups and planks to push ups and butt lifts to stay in shape.
