Who We Are
We are a RSO (Registered Student Organization), a club team at UMass, but do not let the word “club” mislead you. Although we are not apart of athletics we practice 4 nights a week and work extremely hard to grow as a team for local performances, as well as the NDA National Competition. Being that we do not have a coach, our captains organize and coordinate everything we do. The team performs in jazz, hip-hop, and pom and can be seen primarily at home football games, home basketball games, the NDA Nationals Competition where we are currently ranked 6th in the nation, and other events around campus. We are simply a group of enthusiatic girls who love to dance and perform!

Triple pirouette, fouettes, turns in second, leaps, straddle jumps, toe touches, switch leaps, etc.

  1. Sam the Minuteman

    I am mad that I am not on your list of team mates! I think I do mario the best! AND….I drop it like it is hot at almost all home football games!

    LOVE YOU!
