The National Dance Alliance national finals took place last week in Daytona, FL, and whoa.
We totally say this every year, but the talent just keeps. getting. better.
In the ever-competitive collegiate division, the Brigham Young University Cougarettes took home top honors in the Division 1A jazz category (earning the team’s 16th national title), while the University of Louisville Ladybirds were the D-1A hip-hop champions. (BYU was second in the hip-hop division.)
Whether you have your sights set on joining a college dance team someday or the thought has never crossed your mind, you need to see what these teams threw down in Daytona. Between the unreal synchronicity, the crazy talent, and the seemingly nonstop crowd-pleasing moments, check out the Cougarettes’ two routines from NDA Nationals 2016, plus a throwback to the Ladybirds’ 2015 routine (while we wait for their new ones to pop up online).
Get the full list of this year’s winners here. Congratulations to all!
