COMMUNITY CONNECTION UPDATE:
This past month we were able to support the Murray, Hillcrest, and Jordan Drill Teams as well as Cottonwoods Cheer team by having our company dancers perform at their year-end showcases. These performances have all been positive experiences filled with love, support, fun, high energy, and excitement! The dancers just love being in front of an audience, and you could see it on their faces. We are so grateful for the opportunity to shine on stage out in the community.
