Cameo Knight, a freshman on the teams states “The Badgerettes are different from other teams I’ve been on because I’ve never done the style of dance we do. We do a lot of cheer and hip hop and it’s been really fun to learn new styles.” With practice five times a week, they spend immense amounts of time perfecting these dances and making sure they are performance ready.
