Rutgers All Girl and the Rutgers Dance Team are competitive cheer and dance programs that compete annually at the UCA/UDA Collegiate Nationals in Orlando, FL. As a representative of Rutgers University you will be a part of a dynamic family that pursues excellence every day!

RU Cheer and Dance

The Rutgers Spirit Program represented Rutgers University and the state of New Jersey down at the UCA College Cheerleading Nationals down in Orlando, FL on January 17th and 18th. After months and months of training, hard work, and determination, it showed on the finals mat as all three performances made it through to finals. The cheerleading squad placed 12th in the all-girl division 1A category, and the dance team placed 7th in the division 1A Jazz category, as well as 6th in the division 1A Pom category. The Rutgers Spirit Program as a whole represented itself as strong contenders as a division 1A school, and they plan to continue to close the gap in the future years to come.

Both teams are still in the midst of cheering for the Scarlet Knights during our first B1G basketball season.

The All-Girl cheerleading squad is just commencing their first season as participants in STUNT the sport, and is excited for their first match at the end of March.
