October 2-5, 2020
On October 2-5th, our JR and INT/SR TEAM attended our first competition in this COVID-19 pandemic.
I could not be more happier and proud of our dancers at Dancesations Dance Academy here in St.Catharines.
11 studios competed with Luv 2 Dance an Internationally known competition! The competition was fierce with amazing studios from all over Ontario.
As you can imagine, these girls worked so hard doing classes on zoom for months, had less than a month to prepare and were so focused during these past months during these very difficult times. They overcame so many challenges and rised above!
I typically do not post all the results like this, however under the circumstances we can all use positive news and because of competing during COVID-19 in a very new way I just cannot hold back my joy for my studio and team!
