Even if you (like me) don't have a rhythmic bone in your body, there's something so mesmerizing about a perfectly in-sync dance routine. And when you take it up to the competitive level of collegiate dance, where teams go head-to-head under the pressure and glaring spotlights of the national championships, the intensity hits even harder.
As just one example, we present Washington State's dance team, who competed at the 2020 College Dance Team National Championships to a Kanye West hit that has our hearts pounding just to watch. Dancing to "Selah" from Kanye's Jesus Is King album, the team showcased their strength, flexibility, and incredible synchronization with a performance that managed to be graceful and hard-hitting all at once. The beat picks up at the end as these talented athletes leap, spin, and split faster and faster. When the music finally dies, you'll be left wanting so much more.
Washington State may not have taken home the top prize, but they left the audience with a performance they won't forget any time soon. Check out the full jazz routine above, and for more gorgeous dance performances, take a look at the University of Minnesota's dazzling, hypnotizing routine from the same competition.
