DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.—The Bellarmine University Dance team finished third at the National Dance Alliance’s Collegiate National Championship held Thursday and Friday in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Competing in the Team Performance II Division, Bellarmine improved on its preliminary score in the finals, but it wasn’t enough to keep pace with Tamagawa University and the University of Minnesota-Duluth, who finished first and second respectively.

Bellarmine’s Dance Team also finished fourth in the Hip Hop competition, the highest placement ever by a Bellarmine team in that category.
