Grand National Champions. All divisions.

That’s your University of Louisville Ladybirds dance team. For the 10th time, dominating the National Dance Alliance National Championship this week at Daytona Beach.

The Ladybirds beat out dance powerhouse squads from Brigham Young, Iowa State, Penn State and Kansas State among others at the single largest collegiate cheer and dance event in the world.

More than 240 teams from across the country gathered to compete for the honor, judged on technical skills, showmanship, game day abilities, and teamwork.

Hang around a few minutes during halftime. Good show.
