The Temple High School Kittens Dance Team is a nationally and state awarded program. The THS Kittens perform in the fall for all of the football games and for each pep rally.The Kittens also compete in high level competitions throughout the spring semester as well as preparing for their annual Spring Show which is performed in conjunction with the entire THS Dance Department. 
 
The dance instruction for dance classes as well as Kittens is based on core training, strengthening of performance confidence and self-confidence, and mastery of dance technique. The THS Dance Department studies a variety of dance genres including Ballet, Lyrical/Contemporary, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, World Dance, and Modern. 
 
Kittens Dance Team members are selected in annual auditions. Being a team member requires hard work, dedication, personal integrity, and self-pride. The Kittens schedule includes summer activities such as team camp which begins the process of team building, technique development, and routine/choreography development. In addition, those selected to officer positions attend a leadership camp. The Kittens Dance Team is a year round program that is full of practices, performances, and exciting opportunities in community events.
 
The Kittens and THS Dance Department are ambassadors for the city of Temple and the Temple Independent School District. They perform services to help local groups and other departments within TISD.
