On Sunday, March 26th DDC’s Competition Team attended StepUp2Dance in Swedesboro, NJ. This was our 4th and final competition of the season. It went way too fast this year! We are sad to see the season come to an end but we are so proud of our dancers! We kicked off this weekend with a little hotel party complete with yummy food, a DDC cake and some hysterical rounds of Twister. Then we were up bright and early Sunday morning for a full day of dancing. Our groups went first, followed by solos. We celebrated two birthdays and watched four of our seniors compete at regionals for the last time. Cara, Taylor, Amanda and Dennis, thank you for your dedication to DDC and for sharing your passion of dance with us. We have loved watching you grow this season! A special thank you to our teachers- Miss Jen, Miss Amanda, Miss Janice, Miss Rebecca, Miss Liz and Miss Amy for pouring your hearts into these routines. Thank you to our family and friends who came out to support us this season. On Sunday we had a special visit from one of our former dancers and her mom. We love it when dance friends come back to cheer us on! We walked away with high golds, double golds, platinums, high platinums and one double platinum! Two of our soloists were presented with sashes as their solos were in the top 10 overall high scores! And this competition recognized DDC for bringing a wide range of age-appropriate styles to the competition and for presenting a solid technical foundation. We definitely ended on a high note. Great job, DDC!
