The FAU Dance Team performs at various functions such as football and basketball games as well as fundraisers for the FAU Alumni and Pep Rallies.
Since 1997 the team has competed with NDA and has participated in the NCA Danz camp held in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. During camp, teams receive bids to compete in the April competition held in Daytona Beach. However, for the past 3 years the team has held private camps with choreographer Tony Gonzalez. In 2001, the team was ranked 10th in the nation in Division 1 Dance and is currently ranked 2nd in the nation in Division Open Dance with NDA. The team attended their annual competition held in Daytona Beach, FL on April 7, 2005 and took 2nd in the nation! Congratulations FAU Dancers!!!
