Best Rebels

Rebel Girls



This team recruits future professionals, contends for national championships and brings the Mack to its feet with every performance. No, not the Runnin’ Rebels—we’re talking about the Rebel Girls. Under coach (and former Rebel Girl) Marca DeCastroverde, they’ve been among the nation’s best dance teams over the past decade, and a first-place finish in hip-hop at the College Dance Team National Championships in January sealed their spot as UNLV’s best for 2013.
