In July, the EDF dancers travelled to Traverse City Michigan where they competed against top dance studios across the United States. With over 1000 entries students were thrilled to qualify and perform in the “Word Series of Dance”. Be Happy, Hokey Pokey, and Man in the Mirror all danced their way into this prestigious sold out show and dance-off.
The EDF Team received many other platinum and high gold marks and overall scores. Each competitive level received an overall high point score – Autobots, Be Happy, Hokey Pokey, Po’s Princesses, Man In The Mirror and Til Enda. Many solos and groups also received several special judge’s choice awards including but not limited to: Best Costuming, Grace and Beauty, Intensity, and Cool Concept.
In addition to competing, students also participated in Master Classes taught by top industry professionals in Jazz, Street Jazz, Hip Hop, Contemporary and Tap. Our students that were hand chosen by adjudicators as “ALL Stars” were asked to perform in an opening number with other “All Stars” form all over the United States. What a routine it was! We are so proud of our EDF All Stars!
The Hall of Fame Nationals was a great way to end our competitive year! We can not wait to see what next year brings!
