    CHICAGO – The UIC dance and cheerleading teams will hold open auditions for the 2014-15 season beginning next week. The Dancing Flames will conduct a clinic on Sept. 9 and auditions on Sept. 10 at the Physical Education Building dance studio, while tryouts for the cheerleading squad are set for Sept. 18 at the Flames Athletic Center.

    The spirit teams recently attended the National Cheerleaders Association (NCA) and National Dance Alliance (NDA) summer camps at Lewis University in Romeoville, Ill. UIC Cheerleading had a successful camp, bringing home a bronze bid for NCA Nationals and will be competing for the first time at Nationals in over five years.

    The UIC Dancing Flames brought home two first-place trophies in the Game Day routine competition, in which the teams bring a perfected routine to camp, and also the Team routine competition, in which the teams learn an advanced level routine at camp. Along with their first-place trophies, they received a partial-paid Silver Bid to the NDA National competition in Daytona Beach, Fla., April 8-12, 2015. The Dancing Flames are currently ranked third in the nation and are hoping to have continued success at this year’s national competition.
