The Hinds Hi-Steppers
For over 60 years the Hinds Hi-Steppers have upheld a history of excellence serving as one of the oldest precision dance lines in the nation. They have performed for audiences across the United States, Canada, and Europe. No group in the U.S. has received more invitations to nationally televised bowl games, professional football games, or national parades than the Hi-Steppers. The Hi-Steppers are still a favorite today as they perform at football games, exhibitions, parades, and community and charitable events. Known as Mississippi’s Goodwill Ambassadors, the dancers have given their time and energy to many worthy causes.
Those selected for the Hi-Steppers must be registered as a full-time student on the Raymond Campus and must maintain at least a 2.0 grade point average. You are not required to live on campus, but it is recommended. Previous dance training is highly recommended, but not required. Attendance at summer rehearsals and preseason Band Camp is required. Hi-Steppers must be enrolled in the Band course and the Hi-Stepper courses (PE college credit given) and must attend all rehearsals during the fall and spring semesters.
