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 will be competing in the National Cheerleading Association (NCA) and National Dance Alliance (NDA) Collegiate National Championships this April!
