UDA Game Day Is Back!
For the second year in a row, spirited school dance teams will bring their sideline traditions to the stage for a chance to claim a championship title.
The UDA Game Day Championship was created as a way for teams to showcase and compete with elements they are doing at their schools and in their communities all season long.
High school and junior high dance teams will be judged on three different sections: Fight Song, Spirit Raising Performance, and a Performance Routine. All must be completed within a total time of three minutes.
Teams will be listening for audio cues to tell them the order of the different sections. This allows for authenticity like an actual game day! Be on the lookout for tradition through the fight song, appropriate energy during the spirit-raising performance and strong dynamics in the performance routine.
The UDA Game Day Championship has grown and this year more than 80 teams will be competing amongst the spirited divisions! Semi-Finals will begin Friday at 9 AM ET in the Visa Athletic Center with Finals starting Saturday at 8 AM ET.
This is the biggest UDA dance event of the season, so don’t miss your favorite team take the stage. Bids to The Dance Worlds 2020 and The Dance Summit 2020 will be handed out to the most impressive all star dance teams.
