Mission Statement

The purpose of the Penn State Lionettes Dance Team is to serve as an ambassador for Penn State, model a positive image, and promote spirit at athletic and charity events.


The objectives for the Lionettes Dance Team are:

  • to provide team members with the opportunity to enhance their dance technique,
  • to provide a quality team experience in order to facilitate the development of usable, transferable life skills,
  • to offer team members the opportunity to experience the commitment necessary to maintain a well-rounded, healthy lifestyle, and
  • to offer team members the experience of serving their community so as to enhance their understanding of good citizenship.


The Penn State Lionettes Dance Team was founded over ten years ago as a kickline team. In 1995, the group became a club sport and current Dance Team Advisor Sue Sherburne joined the team in the spring of 1997. Since then, she and former Academic Advisor Don Ferrell have helped the team to gain campus-wide recognition at athletic and community events. Most notably, the two advisors helped the Lionettes to move from the stands of Beaver Stadium to the sidelines during the football game.
