Dance Team


The Emmanuel College Dance Team performs at all home men's and women's basketball games and participates in various competitions. The dancers are part of the heart and soul of the athletic community, as they foster College pride and encourage fans.

In addition to performing at the home basketball games, the Saints also perform at other major events on campus, including Midnight Madness, Open Mic Night, E.C.D.T Dance Showcase, and Mr. Emmanuel. The team consistently volunteers and performs each year at the Boston Breast Cancer Walk for the American Cancer Society's "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer" on the Charles River Esplanade.
