Most people may know the CMU dance team by their performances at halftime of basketball games at McGuirk Arena and firing up the crowd at Kelly/Shorts Stadium during home football games.
Behind the scenes, however, CMU's dance team is so much more than that.
The team leaves Wednesday to compete in the National Dance Alliance Collegiate National Championship in Daytona Beach, Florida. The event runs April 8 through 12.
