American University Spirit Program

The American University Spirit Program consists of a co-ed cheerleading squad, an all-female dance team, and a mascot. Each performs at all home Men's and Women's basketball games and engages in philanthropic events throughout the community. The teams also support all other athletic teams at select events.

The AU Cheer and Dance Teams practice each Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings for three hours each. In addition, each member is expected to complete detailed workouts on his/her own time. Each member is also required to raise $500 in donations each year to support the program.


NCA/NDA COLLEGIATE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS:
Both teams compete in the National Cheerleading Association (NCA) and National Dance Alliance (NDA) Collegiate National Championships every April in Daytona Beach, Florida!

Fall try-outs for the 2014-15 Cheer and Dance teams will be held on Sunday, August 24, 2014 from 11am-3pm in Bender Arena. Please e-mail spirit@american.edu for more information.
