The Bearcat Belles consist of 9th – 12th grade students. The objectives of Bearcat Belles is to promote school spirit and a feeling of loyalty to RHS and to develop and maintain a spirit of fair play and good sportsmanship during sporting events and at any other time when called upon for other school activities.
To become a Bearcat Belle, tryouts are held before a panel of judges in the spring. Candidates have a 2.0 grade point average and no out-of-school suspensions for the current school year. Candidates must complete an application and are required to get teacher recommendations prior to tryouts. All candidates must abide by the Pepette Constitution and meet all financial obligations. It is strongly recommended that candidates have private dance training prior to try-outs. Pepettes may see the Bearcat Belle sponsor at the beginning of the school year for information regarding private dance lessons. Practices, summer camp, and summer workouts are required. There is a transportation fee and a choreographer fee in addition to uniform fees.
