DAYTONA BEACH, Fl. — The Elon University dance team is now the 2022 National Champions in Hip Hop Division 1. The team also placed third overall in the Pom Division 1 category at the National Dance Alliance National Championship.

Elon did not receive any deductions and got a final hip hop performance score of 95.42, which was just two tenths of a point higher than Utah Valley University. The team was also awarded the Innovative Choreography Award, which is given by the judges when they see something special within the choreography.

This is the first time in the program's history the team has won first place at the NDA National Championship.
