The next weekend was another win for the team! The "Believe" competition at the War Memorial Auditorium in Ft. Lauderdale was jam-packed with incredible talent. Our girls brought home an elite gold, a first place in their category and an overall high score award! We are sad that our competition season came and went so fast but super proud of their commitment and accomplishments throughout the year. We're very proud to have them as part of our dance program!
