Just Dancers Are Close… And It Showed at Revive Dance Convention

SeniorsRevive Dance Convention Charleston is the first all-company competition of 2017 for Just Dance!

“I was so excited to see the kids on stage – they were pumped and it showed,” Ms. Buffi said. “They remembered the corrections that we’ve given them and we could see how they’ve come together as a dance family. “

Just Dance! earned the Entertainment Award for “Misdemeanor,” but it was “Spine” that captured the most awards. It was the highest scoring dance for our studio, a Revive faculty favorite, fan favorite finalist and contemporary award winner.

Other Revive faculty favorite runner-ups from Just Dance! were “Enter One,” “Passacaglia” and “Goodbye.”
