The Lakes Dance Team is competing at districts this upcoming Saturday, March 4th. The team has been eagerly preparing for weeks for this very competition. After a lot of practice the Dance Team is confident in scoring more than enough to make it to the state championships. Also ready to earn their spot bringing back two 1st Place trophies. They get to take both routines, pom and hip hop. Both routines have had big successes this year, winning 3rd, 2nd, and even 1st at competitions. In addition, both routines have reached higher scores late in the season compared to past teams. The Lakes Dance team is leaving with high hopes looking forward upon districts.
