WCU Dance Team 19-20 Nationals Campaign

This campaign ends on January 15 at 09:56AM EST

The purpose of the Western Carolina University Dance Team (WCUDT) is to create an atmosphere at campus and community events that builds community, social wellness, and WCU spirit. The WCUDT supports Western Carolina University (WCU) through performances at athletic and other community events.  We aim to project a positive image for the University and the Department of Campus Recreation & Wellness (CRW).  We aspire to inspire students’ enjoyment and enthusiasm for visual performance, and we work hard to build leadership skills, mental and physical well-being, work ethic, and positive social skills in team members.  While we devote much of our time and energy to athletic events and other initiatives in Cullowhee throughout the year, the Universal Dance Association Collegiate National Dance Competition is the single opportunity to spotlight our talents on the national stage.  That is why we are asking for your support!  The WCU Dance Team 19-20 Nationals Campaign is a fundraising initiative aimed at raising money to support the WCUDT at our national competition from January 17-20, 2020 in Orlando, Florida.  The WCUDT will compete in Division I Jazz and Gameday competition categories.  

Donors who wish to sponsor a specific dancer should note which dancer they plan to sponsor so the dancer gets credit toward their individual fundraising requirement.  Additionally, any donor who donates over $250 and inputs their address on the giving form will receive a signed picture poster of the 2019-2020 WCU Dance Team.  Posters will be sent out after Nationals in late January or early February 2020.
