This summer we had the honor of attending The World Dance Championships. In order to be invited to attend you had to win the Overall High Score in your age division at a regional competition. In April we attended the Nexstar Talent Competition and had 5 routines win "the golden ticket,” which was the high score and invitation to attend Worlds. We had 3 out of the 5 routines that traveled to the Meadowlands in NJ to compete in The World Dance Championships.
This was a very unique competition experience for us. It was a very well run competition with exciting and unique features that we hadn't experienced in the past. There were MC's that announced every routine, the performers were held in "waiting areas" backstage before performing, and they were interviewed following every performance. The teachers were all interviewed as well. This was all broadcast on a live webcast. We had a large number of students at the studio back home who watched the performances from the lobby of the studio as the girls competed live.
At the competition we competed once in the semi-finals and then the top routines from each age division moved on to the finals. Our teen group "Mind Games" competed in the finals and placed 5th overall and won a $500 prize.
This was a very exciting and unique opportunity for the dancers. It was an honor to even be invited to go and we will always remember the fun experience that it was.
