Spirit Programs

The Butler University Marching Band and Cheerleaders performing at a game

The Athletics Spirit program is home to Butler’s cheerleaders and dance team, as well as “Hink,” Butler’s costumed mascot. The cheerleading team consists of one co-ed squad, while the dance team consists of both a blue and a white team. Cheer and Dance report directly to the Athletic Department and perform at football, men’s and women’s basketball, and volleyball games, along with numerous other campus and community events.

Both groups work closely with the Butler University Marching Band (BUMB), which celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2019, and the Butler University Basketball Band (BUBB). Both bands are under the direction of the Jordan College of the Arts.
