Wow! We had an amazing weekend at Juan Diego High School for the Dance America Concert Championship! We were so excited to compete with Dance America because we went to their Summer Slam Dance Camp in St. George last summer and fell in love with their teachers, director and culture. We also loved being back at Juan Diego, we were just there a few weeks ago for the Gotta Move competition and we even got put back in our same dressing room!
All three of our soloists competed early Saturday morning before the team competition and they were stunning as always! They all three danced their very best and it was so cool to see them end their competition season like that! It was also super fun that our team got to be there to cheer them on this time!
Addy competed "You Are The Reason" in the Intermediate Lyrical division and won 2nd place.
Kaylee competed "Shake It Out" in Intermediate Lyrical and won High Gold 1st Place!
Gabi competed "Dynasty" in Intermediate Contemporary and won Gold 2nd Place!
Saturday after the solo awards, we competed as a team. The girls were completely amazing and danced their very best. We were all blown away by their performance!
After we competed we went to lunch at Leatherbys and almost missed awards! We had to leave the parents back at the restaurant and rush over to receive our gorgeous crystal trophy and banners. The parents were great and even brought our ice cream to go.
"Keeping Your Head Up" Intermediate Jazz: FIRST PLACE and High Gold
"Don't Worry About Me" Intermediate Lyrical: FIRST PLACE, High Gold and Best Overall Intermediate Choreography
We had so much fun and loved having this as our final competition this season. We even FINALLY made our first TikTok in our dressing room (check it out on our TikTok or Instagram @dance.studiob).
We love Dance America and we'll definitely be back!
We had a great time at Venue Dance Competition at Northridge High School in Layton. (April 23-24th 2021)
Friday night Kaylee, Gabi and Addy got to compete their solos and they did an amazing job! Kaylee won 2nd place for "Shake it Out" in Intermediate Lyrical, Gabi won 2nd place for "Dynasty" in Intermediate Contemporary and Addy won 1st place for "You Are The Reason" in Intermediate Lyrical. They all danced beautifully.
We got to come back on Saturday for our team competition and these girls proved that they are complete professionals when it comes to quick changes! This competition went so fast because of their block schedule so we didn't have time to do much in between each dance, but we're thankful that it went quickly. After we were done dancing, we met up for a great lunch at Red Robin and then came back for awards in the evening.
We won HIGH GOLD for all three of our routines! We also won a Creativity Judges Choice Award for our team! I couldn't be more proud of these girls and all of the hard work they put in. They handle every obstacle amazingly and dance better and better every single time they get on the stage. 3 competitions down, 1 to go!
Venue had a professional photographer taking pictures of each routine. I'll share those when I get them back. Stay tuned!
Gotta Move Competition at Juan Diego was awesome! We added so many awards to our collection. We loved having a private dressing room (even though we accidentally locked ourselves out once) oops! The girls got to pick their own participation award to take home which was super fun and all of the awards were beautiful! The girls performed their best yet, which has been our goal- to improve each and every week we compete.

Our team results were:

We got to bring home our first ever trophy as Studio B Dance Company and it felt amazing! Most importantly, the girls performed beautifully, had so much fun, and got to show what we've been working towards for all of these months.
