The mission of the CSUDH Dance Team, aka The Torogirls, is to represent our great university in a positive and spirited manner while creating an outlet for students to share their love for the art of dance. It is also our goal to encourage as many young people as possible to desire to become a Toro and choose CSUDH as their new home.
