The Sparkette Dance Team feature outstanding and talented young women. They have performed at professional football and basketball games, as well as supporting their very own ISU Athletic Teams and the Terre Haute community. They travel to post season Basketball tournaments as well as many on and off campus events.  They are proud to represent the University and are a valuable asset to the sports and community outreach programs. The Indiana State University Sparkettes are ambassadors for the university on and off campus.  We look forward to meeting exceptional young women who love dance and all that being a part of an exceptional team brings.  For more information please visit:
