The UNLV Rebel Girls & Company are the intercollegiate athletics dance team for the University of Nevada Las Vegas. The team performs 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.
With the uncertainty surrounding this 2020-2021 season, we are grateful to have the opportunity to compete in the UDA College Dance Team National Championship Virtual Division. In order to deliver an exceptional product to our audiences, we must meet costly financial obligations. This includes uniforms, equipment, and competition fees in order to establish a highly competitive and visible team. Our program is currently the three time defending champions in the Game Day category.
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. The student athletes fundraise their entire operating budget in order to afford expenses such as uniforms, equipment, training, choreography, and participating in the UDA College Nationals and other competitions. The dancers are extremely grateful for the community support they receive each year, and hope for continued support as they take on new opportunities offered during the remainder of the 2020-2021 season.
The hard work and dedication of the UNLV Rebel Girls & Company has awarded them four Hip Hop Division 1A National Championship Titles, in 2013, 2016, 2018, and 2019 as well as three consecutive Game Day Division 1A Nationals Championship Titles, in 2018, 2019 and 2020 at UDA College Dance Championships. This program has also participated in 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. In addition to those mentioned above, our Company (all male dance crew) has competed in World of Dance Chicago and Las Vegas earning two 4th place awards and best themed dance. We are proud to announce one of our biggest achievements to date is being selected as the US National (Hip Hop) Team to represent our country at The Dance Worlds.
With that, we hope that you might be willing to make a contribution to our program in order to help us get the ball rolling on our 2021 "Rebel Raiser" Project. Any contributions are greatly appreciated and will make a difference!
