Dance Team Readies for Saturday's Showcase at Keen Arena

Jan. 8, 2014

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The University of Michigan dance team has a special performance planned for the U-M community this Saturday (Jan. 11) beginning at 2 p.m. at Cliff Keen Arena. The "Pre-Nationals Performance" will feature an exclusive first-look at the two new routines the team prepared for the Universal Dance Association College Dance Team Nationals along with several other crowd favorites. Admission is free.

The Maize and Blue has been preparing a jazz routine and hip hop routine for several months in in preparation for the competition at nationals.

The team will be traveling next weekend (Jan. 18-19) to Orlando, Fla., to compete in the largest college dance nationals in the country. The event will be broadcast on the ESPN family of networks.

In 2013, U-M was the only Big Ten team to make the cut into the hip hop finals. Michigan is perennially a top 10 team at UDA Nationals.
