Junior Company dancers from Rhonda’s FooteWorks traveled to Lake George, New York for Dance Xplosion Nationals June 30- July 4th. The dancers each achieved first place in their respective solo category and first in their duet categories. Their two group dances also achieved first in their categories. All dances from the studio placed in the overalls for their divisions.
“Forever Young”, a contemporary small group choreographed by Director Rhonda Foote, also earned the National Grand Champion title for the Junior Xcellerated Division. The quartet also received notice as the Most Emotional dance in Special Awards and was invited to perform in the Xcalibur Dance Challenge on July 4th. The Challenge featured 20 of the top groups in the under 12 age division. The young dancers from Rhonda’s FooteWorks, ranging in age from 8 to 10, were honored to receive second place overall in the Challenge.
Three of the young ladies also participated in the Xtreme Team and performed in the Challenge opening number. All four dancers took classes and workshops with renowned dance professionals during Nationals.
The dancers receiving National recognition were Julia Covey (daughter of Matthew and Sarah Covey, Watertown), Abrielle Jerome (daughter of Chris and Cara Jerome, Lyons Falls), Isabella Motichek (daughter of Peter and Laura Motichek, Brownville) and Emma Rowley (daughter of Daniel and Crystal Rowley, Evans Mills).
