Nationals

The National Dance Alliance (NDA) hosts one of the most prestigious cheer and dance national championships in the country. Cheer and dance teams from throughout the world come together to compete for national titles in a variety of divisions.

The Lionettes Dance Team attends the NDA competition in Daytona Beach, Fla. every spring. Each year the team competes with a routine comprised of three categories, jazz, pom and funk. The performances are judged based on skill, technicality, uniformity, presentation, staging, choreography and degree of difficulty.
