The Hartselle Tiger Paws Dance Team is a competition dance team that focuses on Jazz and Kick Technique. The 2018-2019 team has 12 members comprised of 10 high-school girls and 2 junior-high girls.
The team attended UDA Summer Camp at University of Alabama Birmingham in June, 2018. Each team member learned 2 individual dance routines as well as a custom routine. The dancers were evaluated on their individual routines and received a Superior Rating/Perfect Score qualifying them for the National Dance Team Championships (NDTC). They competed in the home routine event as well and received a 1st Place/Superior Rating also qualifying for NDTC. Five members were selected as UDA All-American; Mary Elizabeth Adams, Catherine Cline, Becca Faulk, Maggie Guyse and Julya McMinemon.
