The ENTIRE Team Competes at KAR!

Updated: Apr 18

Our Prep Team dancers competed at their first competition this past weekend along with our Company dancers in Boardman, OH at KAR! Each of our dancers had the chance to shine on stage and we loved every minute! Our studio took home the Primary and Elite Studio of Excellence Awards, given to the studio with the highest rankings in each division. It was a weekend to remember! 💙🤩
