March competition Team Newsletter

Congratulations to UDE Competition Teams!
We had our first competition at the end of February and did extremely well! We received mostly 1st and 2nd places. Our Pewee team and Minis team also won overall High Point in each of their lyrical pieces. They had one of five highest scores out 70 teams! We also Won Overall best Dance Studio in both Novice, and Beginning levels, and our Jr. Elite team topped it off with a 1st place High Gold in Intermediate level for their Jazz routine. I was so proud of all the teams and had many compliments from people outside of our studio. Our Soloist did extremely well too. We had 13 soloist compete and left with nine 1st places and four 2nd Places. Not bad for our 1st competition!

St. George Competition
Please make sure, if you haven’t already, that you find accommodations for the st. George competition. I would plan on spending the night on Friday the 26th. The competition usually starts really early in the morning and we need all dancers there rested and refreshed! As usual, We will not have any Competition Teams classes on Thursday the 25th. Most of the Staff and dancers will be leaving that day for St. George so that we can be there for solos on Friday.

  1. The recital says "MARCH 22", but I am assuming it's supposed to be "May", yes?
