2nd PLACE in Division 1 Jazz at USA NATIONALS!🏆🥈

We competed back in February at USA Nationals and took home second place! We are so proud of our months of hard work and determination leading up to this point, and are overjoyed to bring this title back to UCSB! We couldn’t have done it without our coach, Zack, and the help of choreographer Raven. Your guidance and constant encouragement kept us going💙.

Thank you to USA Camps for hosting such a memorable 2020 Collegiate Nationals, and to all of the other college teams competing this weekend that push us to be better.

Proud to be a Gaucho!

Our Story

Thank you for visiting the UCSB Dance Team page!

The UCSB Dance Team is an elite group of dancers that compete at the Division 1 level and support the University of California, Santa Barbara Gauchos Athletic program by cheering, performing, and attending various events, such as: Men’s and Women’s Basketball home games, Men’s Soccer games, and the annual Big West Men’s Basketball Tournament. We also take part in various University events in and outside of the UCSB community.

Our team trains in the genres of jazz, pom, hip-hop, and contemporary. As an advanced technical team, each summer we attend Pro Action Dance Camp in Las Vegas with other college dance teams from across the country and professional NBA and NFL dance teams. At Pro Action, team members train and learn performance routines from top choreographers in the industry.

Along with being a part of the UCSB Athletics Marketing Department, we are recognized as a collegiate Club Sport. The team receives physical therapy, training, practice space, and financial assistance. Each year, UCSB Dance Team works to not only support our NCAA recognized teams, but also our fellow Club Sport athletes.
