Fredericksburg Ballet Centre

Turn it Up Dance Competition

What a weekend for our FBC Dance Team! Although FBC received some amazing awards that recognized their dedication, precision and commitment to the art of dance, what I loved to see was the team members themselves congratulating other teams, cheering for their team mates, supporting each other when someone stumbled, or needed a bobby pin, and helping each other review dances and giving positive critiques and encouragement. The FBC dance team members demonstrated the spirit of good sportsmanship and team camaraderie. Here are their results: Jr Jazz/Musical Theater - High Gold & 4th Place Overall in High Score in their Category. Int Hip Hop & lyrical Teams, Soloist's Rebecca Lloyd & Alex McOsker received High Gold. Sr Tap & Hip Hop Teams, Soloist's Maddie Bender & Allison Foster received Platinum. Sr Jazz Team received Platinum and 2nd Place in the Small Group Overall High Score in their category and was selected to participate with the National Dance Team. Production/Contemporary received Platinum, Special Judges Award "Attention to Breath," 5th Place in the Large Group Overall High Score in their category and was selected to participate with the National Dance Team. Ballet Team received Platinum, Special Judges award "Dancing on a Cloud," 5th Place in the Small Group Overall High Score in their category AND was selected to participate with the National Dance Team. Soloist Ashley Cleaton received Platinum, a Special Judges award entitled "Smooth & Silky" AND 10th place in the Sr Teen Overall High Score. It was quite the moment when the Judge asked Ashley who was her choreographer and she got to answer, "Me." And our Big winner this weekend was the Int Tap Team who received Platinum, 1st Place in the Junior Small Group Overall High Score in their category which came with a $125 scholarship to Nationals or a regional event AND a Special Award, the Choreography Award. The judges pick ONE dance, that's ONE dance out of 358 entries to give this award to and our very own Ms Cherish received this award for the Int Tap Team. Way to go Ms Cherish!IMG_0365
