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!
