The 2017 University of Minnesota Duluth Dance Team turned heads as the captain-led team glided and danced their way to third place in the Open Jazz category at the UDA College Cheerleading and Dance Team Championships in January.

What many don’t know is the team is led and coached by the captains – they do not have a coaching staff.  The team mastered a beautiful Shelby Feddema and Kenzie Symanietz choreographed dance for the UDA Championships and executed it to perfection.

If you are near Duluth, you can meet the team on Saturday, June 3 as the team is hosting a car wash to raise funds for their upcoming season.

What: UMD Dance Team Car Wash Fundraiser
When:  Saturday, June 3rd from 4-7pm
Where: Ogstons Body and Paint
50 West Central Entrance

The UMN Dance Team has their final tryouts on Saturday, June 3, and the car wash will be your first opportunity to meet the new team and hear what they are up to this year.
