The Northeastern University Dance Team is the official Dance Team under Northeastern University Athletics and Club Sports. Founded in 2003, NUDT is a nationally ranked team of dancers from all majors, class years, and dance backgrounds committed to the art of dance and promoting Husky Spirit. The team plays an integral role in the Northeastern community, performing at a multitude of athletics events including Men’s and Women’s Basketball, Ice Hockey, Soccer and Women’s Volleyball games. We travel annually to the CAA Basketball Tournaments and attend March Madness when eligible on behalf of Northeastern Athletics. We also serve as Northeastern ambassadors at annual Beanpot Tournaments, Convocation, Commencement, Welcome Week and President Aoun’s Holiday Event. We pride ourselves on having a community on campus and a strong alumni network. The Northeastern University Dance Team competes annually on a national level as a Division 1 team at NDA Collegiate National Championship in Daytona, FL. In 2023, the team ranked Top 3 in the nation in Team Performance and Top 10 in Hip Hop. Team styles include hip-hop, jazz, and pom, with a strong underpinning of technique in all routines. NUDT practices 3 to 4 days a week, with practices supplemented by strength, agility, technical and mental skills training.
