Every year, some of the best dance teams from around Minnesota and surrounding states convene for a weekend of dance. First, the University of Minnesota’s Best of the Best dance performance sweeps into Williams Arena on January 8, 2016 starting at 7:00 p.m. Second, the UDA Spirit of America Dance Competition takes over the Rotunda at the Mall of America on Saturday, January 9, 2016.
Some of the highlights from both competitions are below. If you have never seen competition dance, the Mall of America event is a place to learn the sport. It is free to attend and you can come and go as you need.
If you want to see some of the best dance in the country, including the five time defending national champion University of Minnesota dance team, the Best of the Best Competition is where you need to be. For $10 you can see over 30 performances from some of the best teams in the country in a laid back “friendly” performance that will leave you speechless. The 2015 Best of the Best galleries can be found here.
