The members of the University of Minnesota Dance Team have proven themselves to be the best of the best once again! The team recently competed in the 2012 UCA/UDA College Cheerleading & Dance Team National Championship and defended their championship title for the third year in a row. The U of M team placed first in both the jazz and pom categories. The competition was held on January 13-15, 2012 at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, FL. As a student, I have watched these girls dance at every football and basketball game (I even had class with a few of the dancers this year!). Their jazz and pom routines are truly something to be proud of--there is no doubt that they deserve the national trophy!If you would like to learn more about the members of the U of M Dance Team, visit the Gopher Sports Dance Team webpage.
