Just Dance! Collective and Mini Mini Teams kicked off their 2022 season at Groove Dance Competition Charleston regionals.
We are thrilled that ALL of our group dances earned first place in their category (style of dance)! Plus, three group dances took first overall in the competition! Caroline Harkins, Faith Tranchida, Jenna Huser, and Maggie Bednarczyk earned Groove Convention Scholarships, which covers a percentage of the convention entry fee. Read why we love conventions!
At Groove, dancers are placed into competitive levels (novice, intermediate, competitive) based on the number of hours per week they dance. with novice being the least amount of hours danced and competitive being the highest. The Mini Mini Team danced in the novice competitive level, Collective danced in the intermediate level, and Company members competed in the competitive level.
