The Zea Mays Dance Team 

2002 National Danceline Championship Participants!

Nicole Anderson is the captain of the 2002-03 Zea Mays and can be contacted about tryouts at: nitch13@hotmail.com

Who is the Zea Mays?
The Zea Mays is Concordia Collegeās dance team. The name is cleverly derived from the biological nomenclature for corn!

The team performs at all of Concordiaās home football games as well as select basketball games. The Zea Mays are also active in various shows on campus and in the community. Along with these performances, the team competes on both the local and national level. 

The season begins in late August with members attending a dance seminar in the Twin Cities and continues until national competition in the spring.

Any Concordia student, freshman through senior, is able to try out for the team.

Tryouts for the 2002-2003 team are tentatively scheduled for September 17-19. During the first two days participants will learn a short routine as well as dance technique. On the third day, dancers will perform the routine and skills before a panel of judges. The judges will not choose a
set number of individuals, but will accept as many as possible who they believe will be beneficial to the team. The skills dancers will be judged on include

  • Pirouette: single, double, or triple turn
  • Leap: split leap or switch leap
  • Russian/Toe-touch Jump
  • Sequence of Kicks
We will be teaching all of these skills during tryouts; dancers are not required to know them before tryouts. If you have any more questions e-mail one of the captains or visit us at the Cobber Expo or Info Booth in the fall.
