Hart Dance Team has now jumped into competition season! Competition season starts in January and finishes towards the end of March. Hart has started the season off strong by placing in the 1st runner up at their first competition. The competition of 2019 took place at their annual competition in San Diego on January 19 and 20th. The dancers stayed in a hotel overnight and consisted of team dinners before and after the competition, along with a lot of bonding.
“San Diego is such a great experience.” said senior dance team captain, Sophie Smolsky.
The girls travel to many different places almost every weekend. Dance Team practices every morning in the small gym and practice 12 hours a week as a full team and during competition season, they are constantly scheduling additional practices. They are currently working on 9 competition routines each weekend during practices. They also work on their technique throughout the whole year.
“As a team, we strive for perfection! We never stop cleaning our routines and they grow and evolve with us throughout the season. We constantly are learning new routines for school, local and competition performances!” Smolsky said.
