    Dance Team Contest Winners - 2019

    The Varsity, Middle School, and Elementary Stars competed Feb. 23-24 at the Crowd Pleasers Austin Showcase.

    Each team worked incredibly hard leading up to this point. This was Elementary's one and only contest, Middle school's second and last contest, and Varsity's second but not last contest. It was amazing to see the teamwork, dedication, and passion for dance that each team brought to the floor. Their results reflected this as well. They were up against very talented teams, but overall ended the day will some great successes!!
