Thank you Amanda, Jessie and Lori for leading our first team to Success!


Congratulations to our competition team on their amazing first season! 

At their first competition, the dancers walked away with Overall High Scores for 5 of their dances including a 1st place prize for their fantastic tap piece. The second competition was even better with 6 dances placing in Overall High Scores in their category including a Special Judges Award, "Latte of Fun," for their full team piece, "Coffee in A Cardboard Cup."  Two pieces -"Amelie" and "Ramalama" were also awarded "Golden Tickets".
