Picking a name for your dance team can be challenging, yet it does present the opportunity to be as creative as you want. Of course, a wrong decision on your part (or the team’s part) means having to live with the name for a long, long time. Once your opponents and the audience is aware of the team’s name, it can be tough to change it into something else. Which is why, it is crucial that you pick the right name from the very beginning.

How to Choose Names for Dance Groups
Although there aren’t any rules you need to follow; however, if you want to give your team a unique identity, you need to get creative. Gather all the members of the team, sit together, and focus on coming up a name collectively. And to help you get started, we’ve put together a few factors to consider in choosing good dance team names.
~ It is essential that you consult with entire team and hold a brainstorming session together.
~ A team name reflects who you are and what kind of message you want to send to the opponents. Depending on this, you can try bouncing some ideas off one another.
~ Consider your team’s strengths and what the members have in common to finalize a good name. Maybe a name that has an inside joke, a trait all the members have, a theme, or even a creative spin or an acronym.
~ Choose a name depending on your group’s dance style. Whether it’s hip hop, disco, breakdance, jazz, or lyrical, you can rely on it to find a name.
~ A little play on words never hurt anybody. Keep all these factors in mind while you’re conducting those brainstorming sessions.
Dance Team Name Ideas
Depending on what and how you wish to portray the team as, a name can easily get the message across. The right team name can really make a huge difference as to how the team is perceived by others, and the team’s morale.

Even though we’ve provided a lot of suggestions for your team, make sure you don’t use it as is. Do a little bit more research, discuss among your team, and give a creative spin to these ideas. You don’t want your opponents and fans to get confused your team with another, if they have a similar name. Bounce your final choices off friends, colleagues, and family members to get an idea about what they think.
