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.

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


Fall tryouts for the 2015-16 AU Cheerleading and Dance Teams will be held on August 31 (7:30 pm -11:00 PM) and September 1 (6 pm - 8 pm). All candidates must be present at both days of tryouts. Please contact for more information.
