At the DTU National Championship, YOU ARE THE MAIN EVENT! Don't compete to be on the sidelines. We believe the main purpose of your dance team is to fulfill their maximum potential as athletes and to be recognized and appreciated for their skill.
To help create a seamless and stress-free experience at Nationals, your team registration package includes:
THE DTU NATIONALS EXPERIENCE
The Spirit Showdown category is an additional opportunity for teams to show the audience something that is entertaining, fresh, new and unique to their program. It also allows teams to take creative risks with very few rules and to have fun!

Follow along as we recap our Regional Competition season and what to expect from our attending teams when we see them at our National Championship!
Our “DTUniversity” learning sessions, sponsored by Sharpen Up Dance Team Training, are unique to Dance Team Union! Before and during Nationals, participants, coaches, and spectators have an opportunity to attend DTUniversity classes, which offer further instruction in different areas of the dance team world. It is a wonderful chance for personal development, and it will give you ideas to take back home with you. This is great to share with your school administration and school to bring even more value to the DTU experience.
