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.
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 2022-2023 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.
One of our biggest achievement this past season was obtaining a gold medal as the US National Premier Hip Hop Team at the 2022 International Cheer Union World 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 2022-2023 "Rebel Raiser" Project. Any contributions are greatly appreciated and will make a difference!
