The Mater Dei Song Program is a nationally ranked award winning sport that merges the athleticism of cheerleading with the art of dance. The Song Team competes competitively at both regional and national levels while also supporting our school athletic and performing arts departments. The team performs during both football and basketball seasons and also performs at pep rallies and various events throughout the year. This award winning team is composed of scholar athletes and dedicated dancers who strive to represent MD in a positive and spirited manner. The program is comprised of a Varsity and JV Teams whose friendships and dedication to their art of dance makes for an invaluable and special experience at the award winning Mater Dei High School.
Many members of the MDHS Song Team have gone on to university dance and song programs at USC, Cal Berkley, SDSU, UA and many others. These talented dancers have also held staff positions with USA, NDA and UDA and US spirit leaders as well as high school coaching positions. The alumni song leaders have also gone on to choreograph music videos and university dance programs, and have returned to MDHS to coach and choreograph our award winning team. The MDHS song leaders are actively involved in many school activities. More than 50% of the song team are involved in ASB with many holding officer positions. Several of our talented team members also sing in the award winning MD choir, traveling to Europe and singing at the Vatican. The song leaders are involved in Campus Ministry (attending retreats) and many on campus clubs and organizations while maintaining academic excellence.
The Songleaders have carried on a long tradition of outstanding performances at the competitive level. The team has won numerous national titles, regional, and state championships. As a reward for the team's hard work, each member of the varsity team earns a varsity letter given to them at the Pep Squad Banquet at the end of the year.
The Song Team program is led by head coach/advisor, Aubrey Price. Coach Price can be reached at email@example.com
