The Bellarmine Dance team started its 2015-16 season with an impressive showing at the NDA Dance Camp held July 30-Aug. 1 at the University of Louisville.  The squad earned multiple recognitions including a second place finish in Division II and picking up a silver bid to NDA nationals.

Several individuals were singled out for special awards with seniors Megan Kanter and Kelly Schmitt earning NDA All-America honors for the second straight year.  Rachel Kanter, Alex English and Breanna Ferguson also picked up nominations to audition for All American.

The Bellarmine Dance Team's peers also lauded the Knights squad by voting them "Most Spirited." In addition, Bellarmine was one of just two Division II teams to earn a superior ranking in the "Game Day Run-off."  The Knights joined Grand Valley State along with Miami (OH), Western Kentucky, Western Michigan, and Purdue in receiving the honor.
