Team Performance is one of the hardest divisions at the championship as it forces teams to be versatile and technically strong. Dancers have to execute Jazz, Hip Hop and Pom sections that flow seamlessly from one to the next throughout the routine.

Orange Pride was ranked second heading into Team Performance Finals but their synchronization and staging was on point for Day 2. The impressive performance earned the championship title and a final score of 94.96
