ORLANDO - The St. John's Dance team will travel to Orlando, Fla., this weekend to compete in the 2018 UCA & UDA College Cheerleading & Dance Team National Championship.
The dance team has seen success over the past two outings, in 2016 the dance team won their first national championship in hip hop, and most recently the team had a top 10 finish in hip hop.
"We are incredibly excited to bring this year's team to nationals," head coach Christine McCarton said. "The team has been working very hard since September to prepare these routines and cannot wait to hit the national's stage and compete against the other talented teams in our division for both hip hop and jazz. We are also looking forward to the game day competition which focuses on game day interaction with the crowd which is our primary focus - to entertain our Johnnies fans. This division includes a media timeout, halftime performance, fight song and cheer. "
The three-day event (Jan. 12-14) will take place at the Walt Disney Resort with the semifinals on Saturday, followed by the finals on Sunday.
St. John's will be competing in hip hop and jazz categories as well as the game day competition. The Red Storm has placed in the top-ten for hip hop routine over the past six competitions.
