The Muskogee High School Varsity Dance Team attended the National Dance Team Alliance Dance camp held at the University of Oklahoma on July 21 to 24 with dance teams from around the state. Muskogee High School Varsity Dance Team Captain Gabi Chitwood was awarded the All American Award. The All-American Award is the most prestigious award given at NDA camp - earned by those who show strength in spirit, technique, showmanship and leadership.

In order to receive an All-American award the NDA judges nominate the dancers to perform short choreography, and from the choreography performed, they select the All-American NDA Dance Team.

At the final awards ceremony, the Muskogee High School Varsity Dance Team received Bronze for their Team Dance performance and received a National bid for their Home Routine.
