"Cougarettes in Concert" at Provo's Covey Center Feb. 17-19

With special guests Vocal Point

Brigham Young University’s national award-winning dance team the Cougarettes will be performing in a series of concerts Thursday through Saturday, Feb. 17-19, at 7:30 p.m. at the Covey Center for the Arts in Provo. A Saturday matinee will be held Feb. 19 at 2 p.m.

This year’s concert will also feature special guest Vocal Point, BYU’s popular all-male contemporary a cappella ensemble.

Tickets for the event are available for $10 through the Covey Center box office at 425 W. Center St., by phone at (801) 852-7007 or online at coveycenter.org. The performance is recommended for ages 6 and above, but children ages 2 to 6 will also be admitted. 

“Cougarettes in Concert,”  an annual performance by BYU’s famed athletic spirit squad, is directed by Jodi Maxfield. Audiences will see why these talented dancers have excelled on the national stage, winning the 2010 College Dance Team National Championship and eight national titles since the group’s formation in 1946.

The Cougarettes have long been associated with the pageantry and tradition of BYU intercollegiate athletics. They are an important aspect of BYU Athletics and are part of the BYU Spirit Squad, which includes the Coed and All-Girl Cheer Squads and Team Cosmo. In 2000, they joined forces with the BYU Cheer Squad, promoting spirit and dancing during home games.

The Cougarettes are categorized as a precision dance team, but the scope and breadth of their focus is deeper and much more varied. They are fluent in jazz, funk, lyrical, character, high-kick and military dance styles. Dancers are required to have knowledge and practical abilities in ballet, modern and jazz techniques. They must also maintain their progression in each of these areas while they are members of the Cougarettes performing team.

The mission of the Cougarettes is to provide the very best quality halftime shows and dance performances while maintaining the standards, spiritual focus and atmosphere of BYU and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Established more than 60 years ago, the Cougarettes boast alumni numbering in the thousands.

Going cashless to prevent COVID-19 was useless, new BYU microbiology study finds

May 12, 2022
A new study published in PLOS ONE from BYU scientists finds that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is almost immediately nonviable if deposited on a cash banknote. The virus actually shows greater stability on plastic money cards, with the live virus still being detected 48 hours after initial deposition, but no viable virus was detected on either cash or card that was randomly sampled in the study.
