We are excited to announce that our Husky Starter has gone live!
The Husky Starter Program is a platform through the University where donors can donate to our financial goal of attending NDA Nationals in the upcoming spring semester. The fundraiser will be open through Thursday, January 18th, 2018!
Each year, National Dance Alliance (NDA) hosts collegiate dance nationals in Daytona Beach, Florida. In April of 2016, we competed in the D1 Hip Hop division at NDA Nationals and advanced to finals which was a major accomplishment for our team. This year, we qualified for a Silver Bid to attend NDA Nationals in April 2018 after being named the "Most Improved" team at summer dance camp for the first time in NUDT history.
As a team, we are responsible for financing all of our endeavors throughout the season and Nationals requires a large sum of money for costs related to travel, hotel rooms, costumes, competition fees, choreography, and more. We have held numerous fundraisers around Boston to raise the resources necessary for our trip but we need the help of family, friends, and alumni to help us reach our lofty goal! Any donation made to our Husky Starter fund will go a long way in contributing to the costs of sending our team of 20 ladies to Nationals in April 2018.

Meet our Fall 2017 Rookies:
Congratulations, ladies, and we cannot wait to work with you this season!
The season is officially underway! We spent August 7th- 9th at Boston University attending NDA Camp in preparation for the upcoming Nationals season. We left with a spirit stick, two ribbons, 3 "Pin It Forward" Recipients, 3 All American Nominees, an All American Winner, and a Silver Bid to Nationals for being the "Most Improved"Team at camp. We are so thankful for all of the time and effort the NDA staff put into helping our team grow and improve throughout camp.
Our three lead captains and treasurer had an amazing experience at the Pro Action Dance Convention in Las Vegas over the weekend. They spent two days learning game day routines from so many talented choreographers and were able to meet many collegiate and professional dancers, as well. We are so excited to bring these routines to life on the court this season!

Meet Our Fall 2016 Rookies!
Congratulations, Ladies! We're thrilled to have you join our family this season!
Dance Team has had a busy start to the year! We held auditions in April and September and added nine talented dancers to our team! Since then, we have been working hard on learning game day routines, training for nationals and supporting Northeastern Athletics on campus. We've participated in events like Midnight Madness, Fall Fest, and Homecoming Weekend and attended Soccer, Hockey and Volleyball games so far.
With the basketball season just days away, we've perfected many of the dances we learned at Pro Action in Vegas this summer. A few of our favorites are to Milkshake and Shut Up and Dance, so now we're just counting down the days till we can perform them!
We have also been hard at work fundraising for Nationals this spring. Our team has done a brunch at Conor Larkin's, a Yankee Candle Fundraiser, a workshop with Pro NBA Dancers and a Catalyst fundraiser. We have many more events and campaigns coming up, and appreciate all the support we've received!
Check back for more updates from our season! #seeyouonthecourt

NUDT Coach Kay and Captain Brittany spent the morning giving back with Community Servings, picking up and delivering pies for families in need! It's extremely important to Coach Kay that NUDT gives back as part of our commitment to the community. Thanks ladies!
After a fierce battle with Navy and Manhattan University, the NU Men's basketball team has one the Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament at Mohegan Sun! Thanks for the great game!
Northeastern rode a hot-shooting first half to a 20-point halftime lead and never looked back in a 65-51 victory over Manhattan (1-3) in the championship game of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Tipoff at Mohegan Sun Arena. NU captured its first in-season tournament title since 2009 and improved to 4-0 for just the fourth time since the NCAA instituted Division I classification in 1973.
