While the Bearcats have been known for having championship teams on the many athletic fields over the years, there's one area that doesn't get the respect they deserve from the Bearcat faithful.

The University of Cincinnati Dance Team has seen great success over its fifteen years of existence. In fact, the girls have won back-to-back National Championships in the Division 1A Hip-Hop Category from the UDA College National Dance Team Championships held in Orlando, Florida.

While they came up short in the Dance Category (4th Place), it's the highest the University has ever seen a team finish.

Led by Lisa Spears the UC Dance Team is set to have another great year during the 2005-2006 seasons. Spears will enter her eighty year as head coach is a former team member as a student at UC.

On Friday, during the Big East Celebration, the Dance Team performed at both the event on Fountain Square and at the UC Baseball Stadium. Bearcat Insider caught the girls in action and has these photos and short video clip of their performance.

The following members make up the 2005-2006 UC Dance Team.
