+ Dance teams head to nationals
Braden River High School dancers hope a recent win will lead to victory on a larger scale.
The school’s junior varsity and varsity dance teams will travel to the National Dance Team Championship from Jan. 31 to Feb. 1, at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando.
Both teams won first place in the home-routines division of the Universal Dance Association dance camp July 16 to qualify.
The win — the varsity’s team’s first first-place finish at a UDA event — was announced after the girls performed two two-minute routines. The dancers performed dances they had learned in the four-day camp prior to the final day of performances.
