Washburn University Dancing Blues


Michaela Trobough


The Washburn University Dancing Blues are an integral part of Washburn spirit. Serving as the university dance team, the Dancing Blues perform at all home football games, select women’s and men’s basketball games, appear at university and alumni events and compete at the local and national level.

Tryouts are held in the spring and all Washburn University students in good standing are eligible to try out. Successful members will receive a scholarship for their commitment to the Dancing Blues. 

The Dancing Blues are four-time American Dance and Drill Team National Champions with titles in 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2018. They also compete at Universal Dance Association’s summer camp series in Warrensburg, Mo. and consistently bring home superior ratings, among other awards.
