Trojans in motion

Posted By on Mon, Apr 20, 2009 at 4:59 PM

You perhaps recall I dipped a toe in the recent great UALR cheerleading controversy. Acrobatic cheerleaders or sexy dance squad? Pleated skirts and bobby sox or spandex? Etc.

Dancers win.

UALR has announced the hiring of the Arkansas Twisters Sirens' dance team coach to coach and choreograph a new Trojan dance team. Tryouts are set, including training for aspirants.

That's all I intend to say about the matter. I wouldn't want to be accused of trivializing this great and serious institution..
