Game Day is the FEELING, the ATMOSPHERE and the overall EXPERIENCE created when a community rallies together in support of their school. The role of dancers in a Game Day situation is to support the student athletes and raise school spirit.
Attend an NDA Summer Camp and take part in our Game Day Implementation class, where we will teach dancers how to effectively lead the crowd through the use of The Big 3 of Game Day: Voice, Motions and Movement. Applying these techniques and tips is the best way to begin your season.

To provide a unique and exciting opportunity for school Spirit Programs to work together to showcase their ability to promote school spirit and excitement in support of their school and its athletic teams. This division not only allows the use of traditional sideline cheer and dance teams, but also the incorporation of members of the school Marching Band, Pep Band, Drum Line, and Mascot(s). The primary responsibility of Spirit Programs is to develop and implement effective methods of generating excitement and often requires close coordination between various campus groups. NCA & NDA now offers a way to showcase this at the highest level on the largest stage in spirit competition at the NCA & NDA Collegiate Cheer and Dance Championship.
