— The N.C. State University dance team is scrambling to find a way to this week's National Dance Alliance/National Cheerleaders Association Collegiate Cheer and Dance Championship.

The team bought discounted tickets through Skybus Airlines. Skybus shut down operation Saturday after filing for bankruptcy.

During Sunday's dress rehearsal, the team gave away posters and T-shirts to people who made donations.

The team hopes to raise enough money to travel to Daytona Beach, Fla., for the competition.
