A local dance company is celebrating after their performers qualified to compete at the national competition in Las Vegas this summer.
Dancers from All That Dance scored big at two different competitions in the last month, earning them the chance to compete on a national level.
At the end of February, All That Dance was awarded eight first-place overall trophies for group routines at the Starpower Dance Regional competition. Hosted at the Cashman Center in Las Vegas, the dancers also took home 15 first-place trophies for solos, duos and a trio, one Gold Ticket and two Power Pack awards.
Last weekend, the dancers continued on their momentum, shining at the Act 1 Talent competition in Gilbert. Their dancers were awarded four first-place overall trophies, four platinum trophies and two costume awards. All 36 dancers from their junior, intermediate and advanced dance companies, and junior, intermediate and senior hip hop teams qualified to compete for the national championship in July. Layne Tritle won first place overall for her solo performance and the Advanced Hip Hop team won first place overall for their performance.
Victoria Grant, Shana Perrien, Nicole Lloyd, Eva Ramirez, Jessica Aponte, Rhonda Harris, Kerry Kenley, Bailee Kerulis and Jillian Quintanal are the teachers who choreographed dances for All That Dance.
Next up, the dance company will present the ballet “Don Quixote” on Friday, May 12th at Sinagua Middle School. Then, on May 13th, they will present “Legends of Music,” a jazz, tap and hip show that pays tribute to those who have passed. Both shows begin at 6 p.m and tickets go on sale April 17.
