About Universal Dance Association

Universal Dance Association was founded in 1980 as Universal Dance Camps. It was started as a need for educational training for what were then called “drill teams.” UDA actually started calling them “dance teams” to better promote the activity. Jeff Webb and Kris Shepherd started UDA to provide high quality educational training for college and high school dancers through summer camps and clinics on college campuses. From the beginning, UDA focused on the highest standards-the finest instructors, the best choreographers and the most exciting and innovative routines anywhere!

EXCITING NEWS: Varsity TV To Stream 300+ Events In The 2021-2022 Season!

2019 was a strong and successful season for cheerleaders, coaches, and fans everywhere, but the beginning of 2020 brought challenges to everyone. As a cheer community, we pushed through and overcame some of the hardest obstacles we have ever been faced with. Many were not able to finish out their season, let alone have a season. Well this year, we have something huge to look forward to!
