We have a very exciting announcement about Dance Team Union's 2023 National Championship! Due to already increased enrollment, we have decided to expand our Varsity Jazz and Varsity Pom to THREE divisions: Small, Medium and Large Varsity. 

 

Final division splits will be determined based on enrollments in season next year, but we currently anticipate the cutoffs to be as follows, based on team sizes from the last three seasons of DTU:

 

Break for Small Varsity: Between 9 and 11 dancers and below

 

Break for Medium Varsity: Between 10 and 12 dancers on the low end, and 14 and 16 dancers on the high end

 

Break for Large Varsity: Between 15 and 17 dancers and above

 

We will continue to monitor enrollment to see if there will additional division splits in any other performance category or level.  

 

We are looking forward to another fierce championship season in 2023 with even more National Champions taking home rings and jackets, and even more competitive Battles! Stay tuned for more information about the upcoming season, which is shaping up to be our most exciting ever!
