Description of Regular Meetings/Activities

Regular meetings begin with a brief warm-up. Following that, we begin to teach/practice a routine, which will continue for about an hour and a half. For the last 30 minutes, we do a basic stretch and meet, where we talk about what's to come while cooling down.

Description of Special Events

there are fundraisers in the works at Tropical Smoothie, Blaze Pizza, Freddy’s as well as concessions. All monetary items and monies belonging to the Iowa State C-Nettes Majorette Dance Team (C-Nettes) must be deposited and dispersed through the associated account at the Campus Organizations Accounting Office. Both Dancers and eBoard members are required to participate in 75% of the school year’s fundraising efforts through time served, promotion and/or preparation. Lack of attendance with no notice will be classified as an absence and the penalty will be evaluated by the Captain, Co-Captain, and eBoard.
