The dance team also performs at pep rallies, community events, and in the Baker Dance Department Spring Showcase. In addition to football season, the BDT attends a DTU camp each summer, a week of choreography camp, and a week of band camp.

The team has competed at UDA Regionals, bringing home two state championships in large varsity jazz (2017 & 2018), a second place finish in medium varsity jazz (2019), and a second place finish in large varsity hip hop (2020). The team has competed in Dance Team Union's (DTU) regional competition since January 2020 where they placed 1st in Varsity Jazz, 3rd place in Varsity Hip Hop, and Regional Grand Champion for their Jazz routine.
