The UCSD Dance Team is the official competitive dance team for UC San Diego. As a spirit group, team members have the opportunity to participate in a variety of school and community events throughout the year, such as Triton Mania, Sun God, and Spirit Night. The team also supports the athletic department by cheering and performing at basketball, volleyball, soccer, baseball, and water polo games, as well as other Triton Athletics events. Our team also prides itself on our community service initiatives. We volunteer throughout the year and have been named the Most Philanthropic Sports Clubs Team for the past 3 years. In addition to these various campus and community service ventures, team members also have the opportunity to represent UC San Diego in national competitions. The UCSD Dance Team competes annually at UDA College Nationals in Orlando, Florida in both the jazz and pom categories. Although we come from different dance backgrounds, as a team we perform jazz, pom, lyrical and hip-hop routines at basketball halftimes, community appearances, and campus events. We love being able to represent our school both on and off campus! For those of you wishing to continue your dance training in college, this is the team for you! Tryouts for our team are held once a year, in April or May, to select the team for the following year. For more information, please feel free to contact our President or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Go Tritons!
