Get ready for a Texas-sized day of fun because it's the first time the UCA & UDA College Spirit Camp will be held in Longhorn territory.



Dance teams head to camp every summer to learn new routines for their fans. But it wouldn't be dance camp if teams didn't bring their own unique styles! It's a long-standing tradition at UDA College Spirit Camp that the dancers have an option to bring their own routines from home to show off to the camp, coaches and staff. The staff evaluate the unique performances on the first night, and award ribbons for the overall performance of their home routine.




The UDA instructors are looking for creative choreography and execution, and a few of the categories they evaluate include team synchronization, dance movement and skills, technical execution, spacing, formations and overall performance. 



Squads will test their skills and hone in on new ones as they attend camp for the rest of the week at UT. It will all come full-circle on final day as the teams assemble for the announcement of awards and the moment they've all been waiting for: home routine placement!




Good luck, to the home routine competitors:


  • ​University of Texas
  • Hardin Simmons University
  • Louisiana State University
  • Nicholls State University
  • Southwestern University
  • Texas A&M Corpus Christi
  • Trinity Valley
  • University of Louisiana Lafayette
  • University of Puerto Rico-Bayamon
  • Southeastern Louisiana University ​

Watch LIVE as teams attending the UCA & UDA College Spirit Camp at the University of Texas show off their home routines tonight at approximately 6:00PM CT!
