Mount Carmel Academy is home to three dance teams:
The purpose of the Cubettes dance team is to perform at
8th grade sporting events, pep rallies, Open House,
school fairs, and other activities; to participate in
competitions, and to take part in service projects.
Practices are held on Wednesdays and Fridays
from 3:45-5:30 p.m. Some practices may last
until 6 p.m. as competitions get closer. Extra
practices (on days other than Wednesdays and Fridays)
may be called for ensemble/officer practices for
competition or Celebration in the Oaks.
Rhythm is a dance team which provides an opportunity for Mount Carmel students to express their love and talent for dance. It is also an opportunity for the development of leadership and group dynamics skills.
Rhythm participates in various activities such as Mardi Gras parades, pep rallies, school functions, competitions, and other events.
Rhythm practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-5:30 p.m., and may add a third practice day as important performances near.
The members of the Carmelettes are taught routines
and perform at Holy Cross football games and
statewide and national competitions, Mardi Gras
parades, charitable events, elementary school fairs,
and school-related activities. The dance team
provides an opportunity for students to display
their talents and experience the fun, dedication,
and the endurance of working as a unit.
The Carmelettes are taught the value of dance, leadership,
and character. The girls are led by one captain and five
Tryouts are held in late March or early April.
First-year members must try out at the end of
the season and be selected in order to remain on
Practices are held every Monday and Thursday
