Towson Dance Team Tops In NDA

TU Dance Team captures 12th consecutive crown

The Towson University Dance Team won the 2010 National Dance Alliance (NDA) Collegiate National Championship — the team's 12th consecutive national championship — this week in Daytona Beach, Fla., according to university officials.

According to a release from the school, the TU Dance Team was the top seed going into the competition, winning the Division I competition beating Harvard, James Madison, Columbia University, Boston University and others.

The team consists of 27 members and is coached by Towson University professor of Theatre Arts Tom Cascella. The team is formally associated with TU's Department of Theatre Arts.

"We’re extremely excited and proud to represent Towson University once again at the national championships," said Casella.

"The team spirit and cooperation of this group of young women makes them champions," he said. "I can’t begin to tell you how proud I am of our team.”

The Tiger's precision dances are a combination of hip-hop, jazz, funk and pom routines. The Towson University Dance Team performs throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region and at Towson University Athletic Department competitions and numerous community events.

Almost 5,000 student athletes and 15,000 spectators convened for the Daytona Beach competition. The NCA/NDA Collegiate Championship is the largest College Cheer and Dance Championship in the world.
