Ursulettes Dance Team Amazed Judges at Cajun Dome

The Ursulettes Dance Team amazed judges with their Pom, Jazz, Trio and Open routines during the American All-Star Louisiana State Dance/Drill Team Championship held January 16 at the Cajun Dome in Lafayette.

Ursuline took fifth in Pom, third in Jazz, with a pair of second place finishes in the division open and the overall open, which includes competitors from all divisions across the state. 

“This was only the second showing for the Ursulettes’ at a state competition and the talents they displayed were undeniable,” said Ursulettes Head Coach Janaé N. McCann. “Competitive dance builds on key Ursuline values including community spirit, teamwork, dedication, and confidence. These values were on full display at the American All-Star competition. Our girls worked incredibly hard, and I am so unbelievably proud of them.”

Rising 3rd through 7th grade girls are invited to join us for a summer camp in the Summer of 2022. For more information contact Athletic Director Harry Mason at hmason@uanola.org. Click here to register for summer dance camp.
