Cheering for support

DAY IN AND DAY out, practice after practice, the women of the City College cheer and dance team learn choreography and drill new routines in support of the campus and its many events. But according to coaches and team members, the support is not mutual, and the team is fed up.

Trinidad Stassi, director and coach of the dance and cheer team says despite all the work prepping and fine tuning the team all summer (not to mention time and money donated from coaches and directors) to be ready by the first day of the 2013 fall semester, they received little support from college administration.

Stassi adds that the college currently offers no dance courses, though the team has been successful in competition in years past. Courses in several dance disciplines were offered at City College for many years prior to the current budget crisis.
