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 2022 season, we were grateful to have the opportunity to compete in the UDA College Dance Team National Championship in Orlando, FL. 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. We are proud to announce one of our biggest achievements to date is being selected as the US National Premier Hip Hop Team to represent our nation at the International Cheer Union Championship.
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 2022 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 four consecutive Game Day Division 1A Nationals Championship Titles, in 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021 at the 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.
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 2022 "Rebel Raiser" Project. Any contributions are greatly appreciated and will make a difference!
