When you think of powerhouse collegiate dance programs, you can’t help but think about the Rebel Girls & Company Dancers from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
Over the past decade, UNLV’s hard work and dedication has earned them four Division lA Hip Hop National Championship titles, in 2013, 2016, 2018, and again in 2019, as well as two UDA College Game Day Division 1A National Championships.
Since the start of the UCA & UDA College Game Day Championship in 2018, UNLV is the only team to have won back-to-back championship spots.
“We stay true to our culture and tradition at UNLV. Being from Las Vegas we have to always make it bigger and better every year.”
“We maintain the same attention to detail and cleanliness when we perform at athletic events so that the transition into competition season is as seamless as possible,” said UNLV head coach Brandi-Lynn Slade.
When it comes to game day at UNLV, the Rebel Girls consistently display polished and powerful skills in their performance routine that perfectly complements the strong spirit and tradition you see in their fight song.

In the Hip Hop category, fans are always anxious to see the action-packed routine UNLV will bring to the stage.
In 2018, the Rebel made a strong statement with their heartfelt Vegas Strong-themed routine and in 2019 the squad delivered a high-energy routine that was full of tricks to claim their fourth DlA Hip Hop title.
So, what can you expect from the Rebel Girls this weekend?
Coach Brandi-Lynn Slade told Varsity TV to “expect the unexpected.”
“We take pride in being innovative and always pushing the boundaries of traditional thought.”

The 2019-2020 Rebel Girls & Company Dancers are made up of a solid mix of new talent and experienced leaders.
“We have a good mix of both,” said Slade. “Really strong freshmen who have an immediate impact on our program as well as seasoned vets who are committed to continuing the legacy."
The 2020 UCA & UDA College Cheerleading and Dance Team National Championship kicks off this weekend in Orlando, Florida, and the Rebel Girls & Company Dancers are ready to showcase their hard work to the nation.
“Our goal every year is to be better than we were the year prior. That mindset allows us to continue to push into new directions and unlimited possibilities in our routines.”
