KANSAS CITY -- The Siena Heights competitive dance team was one of the 12 teams selected to compete in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) 2020 Competitive Dance Championship that begins with preliminaries on March 13.
The field this year includes five automatic qualifiers and seven at-large bids. The automatic qualifiers are determined by the winners of the qualifiers. At-Large positions will be awarded to the teams with the seven highest Year-End Scores that did not receive an automatic bid. Year-End Scores are calculated by taking 40% of a team's season average plus 60% of a team's average qualifier score.
The Saints are one of eight teams that have qualified for all four NAIA competitive dance championships.
