Testimonials from Camp

"'We had an amazing experience! The staff did a great job with our girls who are new to the world of High school dance team by making them feel confident! We have seen so much improvement in the dancers throughout these 4 days. Thank you! -Legacy'"
"'My team and I absolutely loved the technique camp! It was exactly what our team needed. Improving our team technique is a focus of this year, and the instruction at this camp helped us to reach our goals. We had countless special moments celebrating teammates as they were able to execute new skills for the first time! The individualized instruction with our team was fantastic, and we will use what we learned throughout the season. I like how the coaches were able to collaborate with suggesting skills for the technique stations so our dancers could receive instruction that is aligned with the skills we want to hone in on this year. The staff was so helpful and positive as always. They really make the camp experience fun. I would highly recommend the technique camp to any team. It was helpful for us trying to improve our technique from a basic level, and move advanced teams could improve just as much. The stations were catered toward teams of all levels. Even if teams feel like their technique is outstanding, there were stations that taught how to turn that up to the next level. I hope UDA has another technique camp in Colorado in the future! Thank you!
- Boulder'"
"'We LOVED this technique camp. We felt that it was a much better use of time rather than stressing over performance routine and other choreography. Our teams always look forward to performing their home routine so that part is a MUST! And our teams learned so much through the technique classes. Thank you!! The space was excellent, the UDA staff was so sweet, kind, and knowledgable, and our dorms were clean and cool. The choreography offered this year was great and they had plenty of time to learn it and review it which really helped to boost their confidence. -Ralston Valley'"
