Texas Tech’s Dancers with Soul is a hip-hop team that brings together a diverse group of students.

Preston Opara, a junior at Tech, had no professional dancing experience when he auditioned.

“When I came to college, that’s the only chance I had to join a dance team,” Opara said.

He said he likes having an environment where he feels comfortable dancing, and the members of the team have become very close.

Mariana Cesar was looking for an alternative to the Tech Pom Squad when she auditioned for Dancers with Soul. She said she has been dancing her whole life and was on the drill team in high school.

“It’s a lot more lenient than I’m used to,” Cesar said. “It’s more fun and less stressful than high school dance.”

Any Tech students are welcome to audition for the team. The dancers perform anywhere from high schools to Tech basketball games.

Visit their Facebook page for more information on the group and auditions.
