This image shows the Appalettes of Appalachian State University (1967-current) performing in Broome-Kirk Gymnasium, built 1955, in 1967. The audience can be seen sitting on bleachers in the background. Formerly known as the Mountaineer Marching Team, the Appalettes began as a drill team directed by Appalachian High School Band leader Perry Watson, and comprised of women college students. They reformed in 1966 as a precision dance group, and performed dance routines in parades, pep rallies, and other campus events.
