2014 Nationals Results

14 04 2014

Your UMass Dance Team finished 8th in Division IA dance teams the NDA Collegiate Championship! We were in 8th after prelims and went straight to finals! This season we moved up a division from I to IA so competition was tough! We have accomplished so much over the past few years and will keep growing! To dance among the best dance teams in the country is an honor and to do it all without a coach is a major achievement!

 

Thank you to all of our supporters and fans…we couldn’t have done it without you and we appreciate your never-ending support!

 

Below is our 2013-2014 season’s routine…enjoy!

 

 

 

If you have any questions or would like any information about the team email Financial Captain, Lauren McNally at lmcnally@umass.edu.

 

Spring  auditions are being held on Sunday, April 27th. See the post below for more details!



Spring 2014 Auditions!

10 03 2014

gillette

The UMass Dance Team is looking for some new dancers to be a part of this team! Auditions are open to any UMass or Five College student and high school seniors thinking of attending UMass. We hope to see you all there!

When: Sunday, April 27th @ 12pm

Where: Curry Hicks Cage

There is a $20 audition fee.

During auditions you will have to show us a triple pirouette, fouettes, turns in second, side leap, toe touch, and a switch leap. We would also love to see any other advance skills that you may have such as a leg extension, a switch strattle, quarter fouettes, any gymnastic skills, etc. Keep in mind, the more advanced skills we see, the better. We will also be teaching you a short routine, therefore you do not need to come prepared with a solo.

Being a member of this team requires hard work and commitment but it all pays off when we perform at UMass games and even more so when we travel to Daytona, Florida for NDA Nationals in Spring!

If you have any other questions you can email our financial captain, Lauren McNally at lmcnally@umass.edu

2013 Results!

1 07 2013

The University of Massachusetts Dance Team traveled to Daytona Beach, Fla., to compete in the National Dance Alliance Division I National Championship this week, placing sixth out of 16 finalists on Friday. The squad earned third in the preliminary round to secure a bid for the championship round.

“After months of preparation and two days of competition our hard work paid off and we placed sixth in the Division-I finals,” said team member Lauren McNally. “This dedicated team has showed that with perseverance you can achieve anything. Our energy and passion is what brought us to the top and we could not be more proud of ourselves.”

Towson took first with a final score of 9.625 while Stephen F. Austin finished second at 9.398. Sacred Heart (9.367), James Madison (9.197) and Boston University (9.002) rounded out the top-five. UMass earned an 8.983 to beat out Nebraska-Omaha, which scored an 8.903, for sixth.

You can audition if you are currently a student or a senior in high school expecting to attend UMass Amherst.

During auditions you will have to show us a triple pirouette, fouettes, turns in second, side leap, toe touch, and a switch leap. We would also love to see any other advance skills that you may have such as a leg extension, a switch strattle, quarter fouettes, any gymnastic skills, etc. Keep in mind, the more advanced skills we see, the better. We will also be teaching you a short routine, therefore you do not need to come prepared with a solo.

Being a member of this team requires hard work and commitment but it all pays off when we perform at UMass games and even more so when we travel to Daytona, Florida for NDA Nationals in Spring!

It does cost $10 to audition. This money helps us a lot during the year so we do not have to ask the school for as much.

If you have any other questions you can email our financial captain, Lauren McNally at lmcnally@student.umass.edu
