2017 NDA Camp

With another dance season quickly approaching the BUDT was excited to start the year off on a such a high note– another awesome 3 day NDA Camp, held at BU! After a long awaited reunion of our dancers and coaches we got camp underway, learning new choreography, taking awesome master classes and working on our technique as a team.

At the end of camp we competed the new team dance routine we learned and walked away with our heads held high. We are so excited to have won 1st place in Division I, Most Spirited, Most Collegiate, Best All Around and a GOLD BID to the 2018 National Championship in Daytona Beach, Florida!! We are also very proud to congratulate our three All-American winners: Tiina Lugus, Alex Romano and Katie Chandler– you guys are awesome!

NDA Camp was so much fun and we loved proving once again that #TheWorkIsWorthIt! We can’t wait to start our next season and keep our momentum from NDA Camp going!

Fall 2017-2018 Tryouts

Boston University Dance Team

The 2017-2018 season is fast approaching and after an amazing season, the BUDT is so excited for another year! Last season the BUDT brought home 2nd place in D1 Hip Hop and 4th place in D1 Team Dance at Nationals and we couldn’t be more thrilled. We left Daytona Beach with smiles on our faces and another fantastic Nationals under our belt, knowing that after a season full of ups and downs, our hard work had payed off.

With the school year just around the corner, we couldn’t be more excited to expand our family. We’re looking for dancers interested in joining the Boston University Dance Team with whom we can share our love for both dance and our school!

Nationals 2016-2017

Nationals has come and gone already and the BU Dance Team could not be more proud of all that we have accomplished this season! The 2017-2018 dance season brought with it may challenges and many amazing memories. Our trip to nationals was one we will never forget and a trip that could only have been accomplished thanks to our many generous sponsors, friends and family.

In Daytona Beach, Florida we performed in the D1 Team Performance category and the D1 Hip Hop category. Placing 4th in Team Performance and 2nd in Hip Hop, the team left with a sense of pride and accomplishment from that bandshell. This year marks the BU Dance Team’s fifth year in a row leaving NDA Nationals in the top five of the D1 category! We couldn’t be more proud to have danced our hearts out on the bandshell and left it all on the floor. Leaving Daytona with not only one, but two routines in the top 5 is the cherry on top to such an exciting and fulfilling season!

This was a whirlwind season complete with torn ACL’s, concussions, broken noses and many more obstacles both on and off the dance floor. Despite such a tough season for dancers and coaches alike, the BUDT somehow managed to persevere staying focused on nationals and working diligently towards our goals. Through the love we have for dance, our coaches and each other we were able to perform not one but two spectacular routines at nationals despite many setbacks throughout the season.

The work was definitely worth it for this hardworking and dedicated team! We can’t wait for next year already but for now that’s a wrap to the 2016-2017 season for the BUDT!

BUDT National Championship Ceremony

It was a busy week for the BUDT! At the Men’s Basketball game on Sunday, BU Athletics honored our National Championship from last year with a ceremony. There is nothing we love more than cheering on our terriers, and to be honored for our achievements while doing it reminded us that the work is worth it! As much as we loved the celebration this past weekend we know that we didn’t just get there by chance. So, in preparation for nationals, we have been putting in countless hours of training and meetings and of course using Andy Berler’s BMAX to ensure that we are as prepared as possible for this coming season.

This weekend the BUDT had a few surprises! To show their support of all that we have accomplished, numerous alumni came back to celebrate with us. We shared many laughs and hugs, and received wise words from our older sisters about how to achieve all of our dreams for this season. Having so much BUDT family back in town was exciting and emotional and reminded us of just how much we have to look forward to this season. There is only 10 days left in our crowdfunding campaign, so please consider donating by clicking here and helping us out so that we can reach for the stars and defend our title this year!
