On Friday, December 5 the Blue Illusion Dance Team performed at the Iowa State Dance Team Competition. The girls earned division one ratings in all three of their routines, and for the first time in school history they placed, bringing home second-place for their hoop routine! The girls placed seventh in both pom and hip-hop. This is also the highest the girls have ever placed in these two divisions. There was only a four point difference between first place and seventh place in both divisions. The girls also brought home a distinguished academic award for a cumulative GPA of 3.5 to 4.0!
For the second year in a row we took an All-Male team to state. The boys also earned a Division I rating and brought home third place in their division. We are very proud of what they accomplished at the Iowa State Dance Team Competition, which is the largest state dance team competition in the country. Hundreds of teams from across the state took part in this two day event at Wells Fargo Arena at Hy-Vee Hall in Des Moines.
