DAZZLERS receive a bid to compete at the NDA Collegiate Championships!

The FIU Golden Dazzlers finished sixth out of 18 squads in the Dance Division I category to earn a partial paid bid to the 2006 Chick-fil-A Collegiate Cheer and Dance Championship to be held April 5-9 in Daytona Beach, Florida.

In order to get this bid, they had to submit a video that took about five months to prepare for and shoot. Only six schools receive a paid invitation and the team made it this year! The team has come very far. Four years ago they were in 14th place and the team has done better every year

About The Team:

The FIU Golden Dazzlers is the OFFICIAL dance team at Florida International University in Miami, Florida. The team consists of 25 dancers that perform at all men and women basketball games, some volleyball games, all home football games, pep rallies, Midnight Madness, Freshman Convocation and many other exciting school events. We also make some special appearances at events throughout the year such as the Harley Davidson Kids Holiday Show , the Latin Grammy Awards and the Univision television show Caliente which we have done in the past.

The team has been an integral part of the FIU sports scene since 1989. The first squad was called the Sun Blazer Dancers. Since then the team has gone through many changes, even being called the Panther Dancers in an attempt to rebuild the squad. But, the team has always been at it's best under the name GOLDEN DAZZLERS, which is why the team was reborn in 2001. After many years of back and forth placement throughout many school departments, as of 2001 the squad has been recognized under the school's Athletic Department and is considered the official university dance team. With the support of Athletics, the program has grown tremendously and is now one of the top college dance teams programs in the nation.

The one thing that has remained constant for the team has been it's loyalty to the National Cheerleaders Association under the former NCA Danz, now known as the NDA (National Dance Alliance). The entire team travels to summer dance camp every other year. Auditions for the Competition Team are held within the team in the month of December.
