About ACDA

Since our inception in 1991, we have been devoted to bringing you excellence in cheer and dance competitions. We are committed to fair, well-orchestrated events that are fun for the participants, coaches, and fans. We believe that participation in athletics is a tremendous opportunity for young people to learn the value of teamwork, goal setting, and dedication to excellence. We feel that the values learned as a member of a cheer or dance team will carry over to future success in other endeavors throughout life. To this end, we are committed to offering you the very best in all we do.

Our state of the art judging system, competition management, and incredible production and staging makes our events among the best in our industry. We attract large numbers of teams to offer you great competition at every level, and our adherence to the USASF standards for divisions and rules allow us to offer you a seamless competition experience.

We have been innovators in the Spirit industry, creating: “Reach the Beach” beach-themed nationals, “Surfy” the Spirit Shark, car giveaways at events, and the all-new EPIC Rewards program. We are also co-founders of the first trade association in our industry (SITA), co-creators of US Finals, members of the I.E.P., and Tier One members of USASF, giving out full paid bids to Worlds.

Throughout our growth, we have maintained our commitment to personalized customer service and will continue this for you through our merger with Spirit Unlimited and the creation of EPIC Brands.
