The 2010-2011 Maroon Magic Dance Seniors:
Each summer the Maroon Magic Dance Team attempts to get a bid to nationals through attending dance camp. This summer, the girls achieved their goal and then some. They attended the Universal Dance Association's convention camp in Cincinnati, OH, the largest and most difficult dance company in the U.S. Dancing and practicing from 8:30 AM - 8:30 PM for 3 days gave the girls the opportunity to prove to the UDA staff that they deserve to go to nationals in Orlando, FL in February. Their awards included: Tori Wallace chosen as an All-American; Lauren Legrand as a finalist in the Drill Down Queen competition; a team Spirit Stick for their respect for rules, constant work ethic, and excellent attitude; a Superior trophy for receiving all individual blue ribbons for their learned routines; and most importantly, a bid to nationals. The girls also had the opportunity to learn 2 hip hop routines from the well-known contestant from So You Think You Can Dance, Brandon Bryant. Maroon Magic and their coaches are excited to continue their success throughout this season and hopefully go out with a bang in Florida!
Maroon Magic: Pictured with all of their awards - Bid to UDA nationals, Superior trophy (for receiving all blue ribbons), Spirit Stick, Tori Wallace chosen as an All-American, and Lauren Legrand a finalist for the Drill Down Queen.
Leah's Birthday: Leah Crawford's birthday fell on the last day of camp, so the entire UDA staff and campers sang "happy birthday."
Maroon Magic with Brandon: The team and coaches pictured with Brandon Bryant, the well-known contestant from season 5 of the hit dance show "So You Think You Can Dance."
Team Drill Down: The team's last chance to become the "Drill Down Queen." Drill downs are a series of military commands which teach the girls precision.
Tori is an All-American: Tori Wallace performed solo, competing for a chance to be an All-American; being chosen as an AA will allow her the opportunity to perform in Rome, Italy.
