Sapphires Summer Scoop

Congratulations to our Sapphires Dance Team who attended the Universal Dance Association Camp in Albuquerque last month. Six of our ten Sapphires were in attendance, along with many state trophy winners and schools from all over the state. Our Prep Sapphires proudly represented the smallest school and the smallest squad in attendance.

From 8:30am-11:30pm, dancers spent their time in techniques, choreography and team building classes, as well as practicing outside of class the many routines learned—intense to say the least! They learned eleven dances in the categories of Hip Hop, Pom, Kick, Character and Jazz, with levels ranging from one to five in most categories. The team competed for the “Home Routine” and Coach Rennae Ross participated in a surprise performance of the coaches for the students. By the end of the four day event, the team received “Most Improved.”
