The California State University, Dominguez Hills Dance Team was established in 2006 by mother/daughter duo: Kivia & Cilecia Foster. The team began as a small student organization and is now part of the CSUDH Athletics Department.

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. 

New this year! The Torogirls have added a Gameday Squad for the non-competitive dancer. The team will focus more on the Gameday experience and has lower technique requirements.
