Ask anyone of the more than 7,600 people that leave the sold-out Siegel Center, after yet another Rams victory, about the best part of the game day experience and the “VCU Gold Rush Dance Team” is guaranteed to be one of the most popular answers.
Behind the direction of Vicki Wells, the VCU Gold Rush Dance Team has become widely known as one of the top squads on the East Coast and continually wows crowds at VCU basketball games.
