The Patriettes started off the season with a successful week at the National Dance Alliance College Dance Camp at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX. The team worked together to master new dances, routines, and technical skills.
The first night of camp they were evaluated and competed in a game-day routine run-off against all the dance teams in attendance. The Patriettes had a strong performance but ultimately did not win the game-day run-off. On the last day of camp there was a team dance routine competition where the Patriettes placed 3rd in their division to earn a bronze paid bid to the NDA College Nationals in Daytona Beach, Florida, this coming April.
In addition to the team competition, three dancers were also awarded the NDA All-American award. This award is an honorary award reserved for those dancers that demonstrate superior qualities of leadership, spirit, technique and showmanship. Sophomores, Anna Brown and Lindsey Peters, and Senior, Cassidy McKee, were awarded NDA All-American 2015.
