Congratulations to Haley! She competed at Elite Dance Challenge today and did a fantastic job! Her solo to "She Walks in Beauty" received a Platinum, her solo to "It Doesn't Hurt" received a Platinum and her solo to "Anne Frank" received an Elite Gold along with a special award for "soaring high". They chose this award because they loved the way she floats in the air. Haley received 1st place in the Teen Competitive solos and was chosen to be on their National Team. She was also given the Hollywood Summer Tour Award. Congratulations Haley! A job well done.
On April 8 DE traveled to Springfield Mass for the Legacy Dance Competition at the Mass Mutual Center. We were bumped up in age categories and divisions this time around, but we still did a fantastic job. Our studio won the big "Legacy 12 & Under Award." The entire division had the highest scores against any other studio with the five highest scoring groups averaged out. We are so proud!

Once again, DE earned many platinums and high golds as well as overall placements.
