Special Events

Each dance team attending UDA camp can nominate squad members to compete for the honor of being named a UDA All-American. Those who make All-American qualify for a Special Event Trip and the experience of a lifetime!

How to Qualify for a Special Event

Each dance team attending UDA camp can nominate squad members to compete for the honor of being named a UDA All-American.  All seniors are eligible to tryout.  If there are no seniors, a maximum of six squad members may be nominated to tryout.  Each candidate performs six 8-counts of UDA Choreography and along with an additional two 8-counts of their own choreography.  All-American tryouts are usually held on the third day of camp.  Candidates tryout in groups of two or three.
