It was a beautiful, warm, sunny weekend in St. George with our competition team.  We were very pleased with the progress they made in each of their dances from last month’s competition to this one.   Our dancers performed well and brought home a few more trophies to add to the collection 🙂   

Friday night was Junior, Teen, and Senior solos.  We want to give a shout out to Saige, Savannah, Jenaca, Sarah, Mercedes and Julia for being awarded White Diamonds!  The judges scored quite hard this weekend and earning a White Diamond was a big deal.  We’re also extra proud of our two dancers who placed in the overall awards!  Jenaca and Savannah were named Senior Competitive 3rd and 1st attendants respectively.

Saturday morning started out with the Mini Soloists.  Kelli, Nevaeh, and Vienna all received White Diamond awards.  We also walked away with two overall awards in the mini solos.  Kelli and Vienna received 3rd and 1st attendant respectively.

Duets also performed Saturday morning.  Vienna and Everest received a White Diamond for “Come Fly Away.”  Jenaca and Sarah also received a White Diamond for “Resolve” and were named 2nd attendant in the duet overalls.

After solos and duets we were on to groups!  The judges were tough this weekend but our dancers were beautiful.  Awards were as follows:
