In 1975, the Honey Bears became the first official dance team at Baylor University. The name was changed in 1981 to the Songleaders. The Songleaders Dance Team serves as great Baylor ambassadors on and off campus. The Songleaders are known for their technique and ability to perform jazz, pom, and hip hop during games, events, and pep rallies. You can find the Songleaders dancing at all home football games, all home basketball games, and all home volleyball games.
