The DTU battle competition is an epic showdown of the best of the best!
Qualifying teams from the preliminary round are selected and invited to perform in the Battle, hoping to win the coveted Battle Cup. The atmosphere is unlike any other!

2nd CHANCE ROUND
The Second Chance Semifinal Round is unique to Dance Team Union Nationals and provides teams who do not advance to finals after the preliminary round another chance to compete for a spot in finals! At DTU, every routine will either perform at the Semifinal Round or Final Round so that every team has the opportunity to perform their routine at least twice.
Dance Team Union encourages creativity in all categories. There is no particular style or “formula” required in any category. Dance team is about more than just imitation of previous award-winning routines - we want to inspire your dancers to showcase their own unique style. Our judges will strive to provide you with the most valuable feedback you will receive all season.
