HBCU dance lines and teams are the heart and soul of the campus. They represent school spirit, class, sophistication and artistry. The Honeycombs are no different, and only the most committed, confident dancers are chosen for membership on the team. Being a Honeycomb requires a HUGE commitment to practice, the HSSU campus and community events. Teamwork is a must. We strive for perfection in all that we do.
Our dancing style is extremely diverse. We specialize in all types, including contemporary, modern, hip hop, lyrical, African and our most celebrated is the style we do with the Drumline. We are known for the way that we execute parade moves, our overall look and swagger! There is no other organization in the area doing what we do. Recent performances include St. Louis Rams games; Grand Center’s Dancing in the Street and Off the Walls; the Gateway Classic Parade; Grand Center’s First Night; the Annie Malone May Day Parade; Missouri Black Expo; the St. Louis Thanksgiving Day Parade; HSSU/St. Louis University Black History Month Talent Show (2009 first place winners); HSSU Homecoming Talent Showcase; Soulard Mardi Gras Parade; National Dance Week; all home basketball games and campus dedication ceremonies.
Community service activities include Feed the City, an annual Thanksgiving dinner prepared for the homeless and assisting local high school teams with routines and dance techniques.
