Competition Team Notes for February 4, 2010
We appreciate you working with us even though it was cold. Once the dancers got going they were sweating and forgot about the temperature. A special thank you to the parents and students who arrived competition ready for the showcase. It is much appreciated when the dancers look professional.
LA Dance Magic:
LA Dance Magic was fantastic! I think we can all agree that it was a much improved performance over the showcase. Thank you, parents, for all of your support and working so hard to have the costumes stoned. They looked great on stage. The highest scoring dance for the Academy was Bingo followed by Butterflies. The ladies who made cuts for auditions were Sammie, Ally, Jacy, Cassie, Savannah, Gracie, Sydney D and Brittany. Dancers who received scholarships were Savannah, Sydney D and Brittany. Congratulations to all of our dancers for a job well done! **Thank you Mr. Fuller for copying the video and pictures from the competition**
