22nd Annual Dance Classic
Soloist Duets and Trios that performed at the Dance Time Classic
Jennifer Hill along with her Studio Dance Company kicked off the 22nd Annual Dance Time Classic this past weekend at Malad High School.
Friday night they had 101 Soloist, Duets and Trios performing from Tremonton, Pocatello, Brigham, Logan, Bear Lake, American Falls, Preston and Malad. Soloists performing from Malad Studios were Delanie Walton and Lila Estudillo from Dance Company. Austin Schrenk, Aubrey Price, Cassidy Schrenk, Alyssa Seamons, Aleah Seamons and Samantha Schrenk from Studio A Dance. All the Girls received either Queen or 1st in their Divisions and Austin Shrenk also received the Over-All High Point in the Amateur Division. On Saturday we had ten Studios from Tremonton, Logan, Bothwell, American Falls, Rigby, Logan, Preston, Bear Lake, and two from Malad with almost 600 Dancers competing. Dance Company performed thirteen Routines in Block One earning all Superior and High Superior, Best in Jazz, Best in Hip Hop and three Judges Choice Awards for their routines Angel, Witches are Back and Gold Digger. Studio A Dance performed six routines in Block Three earning Superior and High Suoerior, Most Audience Appeal, Best in Jazz and a Judges Choice Award for their Shake A Tail Feather routine.
The Competition ran very smooth both days and even ended an hour earlier than planned on Saturday. There was some amazing talent both Friday night with all the Soloist, Duets and Trios and Teams on Saturday. All the routines were very entertaining. After COVID we changed up the Dance Competition schedule by putting Teams in blocks of 4-5 Studios then doing awards at the end of each block. It makes it a little busier for the Studios as there isn’t much time between routines but it keeps the flow moving better and the Gyms from being overly packed. Studios have loved it and each year we’ve added more Teams and Soloist’s competing that we’ve had to split it up into two days now. We had some amazing help both days to run the Competition so smoothly and look forward to next year being our 23rd year of hosting.
