Aerosmith on U of M dance team routine: ‘Dance on’

A performance by the University of Minnesota Dance Team at a recent competition has prompted what some may call a sweet emotion from the song’s creator.

As previously reported by 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS, the team had what it takes to take home the Pom title at the 2024 UCA and UDA College Cheerleading & Dance Team National Championships for the second year in a row last weekend.

The team also finished second in the Jazz competition, performing to Aerosmith’s “Dream On” as a tribute to the 2004 team, which used the song in its performance that year. The routine prompted a crazy response from social media users, which now includes Aerosmith.

On Thursday, the band shared the routine on its Instagram account, simply writing “DANCE On” before tagging the team’s social media handle and also mentioning team members on TikTok.

The team responded in the comments, thanking the band and saying they were honored.

5 EYEWITNESS NEWS has reached out to the band for comment on the post.

Aerosmith is in the process of rescheduling its good-bye tour, “Peace Out” which had included a stop at the Xcel Energy Center on Monday, Nov. 13, 2023. However, the tour was postponed to sometime in 2024 according to a social media post made by the band, due to lead singer Steven Tyler injuring his vocal cords during a performance in New York.
