“We are moving a step closer to becoming a full-time varsity sport at the NAIA level,” Payne said. “This is the first time the NAIA has ever been a part of this competition down here, it’s definitely an exciting time.”

Baker dance team headed to NCA/NDA College Nationals
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The Baker University small dance team will be performing at the NCA/NDA Collegiate Cheer and Dance Championship. This year’s event will be held at The Band Shell/Ocean Center/Peabody Auditorium in Daytona Beach, Florida April 7-10.
The team automatically qualified for the event after taking second-place in the Heart of America Athletic Conference Championships. Cheer and Dance remains an emerging sport in the NAIA, but head dance coach Lynsey Payne knows this competition could mean big things in the long run.
