Dance team returns from summer camp

The Lakes Dance Team returned from Star Performance Company Dance Camp at Carthage College in Kenosha, WI. They spent three, morning-to-night, schedule-packed days working as a team with instructors in jazz, hip hop, kick, pom, and contemporary genres. 

The team won the honor of first place home routine with their energetic performance to Maroon 5’s “Lucky Strike” and opened the Sunday Awards Show with an encore performance. The team went on to further be awarded the top, Superior ranking as well as the special “Super Swag” Award.

Individual achievements were earned by Riley Finnegan and Cami Bowen as runners-up in the leaps and turns competition. Additionally, Olivia Antony, Cami Bowen, Riley Finnegan, Sammie Heft, Josephine Horvath, Ryleigh Jones, Mya Pfeifer, and Grace Webster were selected as All-American dancers and invited to dance at the Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl on January 1, 2018. Cami Bowen took the top prize as all-around camp Star Performer with Olivia Antony as a third runner-up. 

All in all, the Lakes Dance Team worked hard and had an extremely successful dance camp. Coaches Tiffany Chilcote, Ally Holbach, and Cassie Peters are proud of the girls’ hard work and accomplishments. Look for more great things to come from this talented team during this upcoming season.
