The Golden Eagles Dance Team is the official Dance Team of the Boston College “Screaming Eagles” Marching Band. Our styles include pom, high kick, jazz, and contemporary, and we welcome dancers from a variety of backgrounds including cheer and gymnastics.

During the fall season, the Golden Eagles perform at all home football games, post-season bowl games, and high-profile events throughout the city of Boston and beyond! The fall also includes a performance in BC’s Week of Dance. Rehearsals are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:45–10:00 p.m. The Golden Eagles also attend the Marching Band’s pre-season camp in late August and participate in all Marching Band events and performances. Visit the Marching Band web page to learn more.

During the spring season, the Golden Eagles perform in a range of campus dance events including ALC Showdown and the Arts Festival. Spring rehearsals are determined based on ensemble availability for an average of 6 hours per week.
