Support The Dukettes Dance Team on their Journey to Nationals!

“The Dukettes are an elite team of driven women working together to continue their love for dance and bring positive spirit to Duquesne University.” - Abigail Howloka, Sophomore Dukette

We are the Duquesne University Dukettes Dance Team, and our journey to compete at the 2019 National Dance Alliance Collegiate Dance Championship in Daytona Beach, Florida starts with YOU.

Last season, we made program history by representing Duquesne in the Division I Jazz category, and we were proudly ranked a Top Ten dance team in the nation. This year, we’re raising the bar.

“When they announced  ‘Taking the stage: From Pittsburgh, PA, The Duquesne University Dukettes’ all of the hours spent preparing for nationals suddenly became real.” - Kylee Battles, Sophomore Dukette

“After finding out that we unexpectedly advanced to the finals, I realized that all the time, pain, and work throughout the season was worth it for those two minutes on stage.” - Kara Reiter, sophomore Dukette

With a roster of 13 talented, committed, and seasoned dancers, our 2019 team is stronger than ever. Together, we have transformed what being a Dukette means, and representing Duquesne on the national stage for the second year in a row is our greatest goal.

“Attending nationals as a first time freshman means truly becoming a family. Working for a common goal and achieving that goal brings a team closer than any other experience could.” - Gabriella Godlewski, freshman Dukette

With the expenses of travel, meals and lodging, costumes, and competition fees, the cost to attend nationals is $1,000 per dancer. Help us make history (again!) and take our program to the next level!

“Your donation will help us fulfill our dreams, and show the Duquesne community our commitment, work ethic, passion, and drive.” - Maddie Miller, freshman Dukette
