Charger Girls Dance Team

“One Sisterhood, dancing for each other and for Christ.”


The Duchesne Charger Girls is a performance-based dance team whose main goals are to grow as dancers, grow as a team, and serve our community. In order to best grow as dancers and as a team, Charger Girls train year-round as a group in choreography, technique, leaps, turns,  strength and conditioning. The Charger Girls also perform at Duchesne Varsity Home Games and Pep Rallies,  STH Football and Basketball Games, perform in the annual Fall Duchesne Dance Show, and compete as a team in the Spring.
