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!
