The UNLV Rebel Girls & Company are the intercollegiate athletics Dance Team for the University of Nevada Las Vegas, who dance and cheer at all Men's Basketball and Football home games throughout the season. The Rebel Girls & Company's dancers must maintain high academic standards while training, performing, competing, and serving as ambassadors of the University at athletic events and throughout the greater Las Vegas community.
The Rebel Girls & Co.'s hard work and dedication has awarded them THREE Hip Hop Division 1A National Championship Titles, in 2013, 2016, and 2018, a National Championship Title in the United Dance Association's Game Day category in 2018—the first year it was offered as a category at UDA College Nationals—as well as opportunities such as performing on America's Got Talent, traveling to Nanjing, China to represent team USA, and being invited to perform for NBA Summer League and the USA Sevens' Rugby team for the past several years. Most recently, the team had the opportunity to perform for the Las Vegas Aces WNBA team.
Although the UNLV Rebel Girls & Company abide by NCAA rules and regulations, Dance is not sanctioned as an NCAA sport, and therefore this dance team is not traditionally funded by the University. The dancers must fundraise their entire operating budget in order to afford such expenses as traveling to and lodging at UDA College Nationals and other competitions, uniforms, equipment, training, choreography, etc. The dancers are extremely grateful for the community support they receive each year, and hope for continued support as they move into the 2018-2019 season.
