Beyond The Stars Convention!

On Sunday, December 3rd, the DKDS company dancers attended the Beyond The Stars dance convention at the Mass Mutual Center in Springfield MA.  They had a lot of fun learning new things from the choreographers and they were certainly challenged along the way.  Both the Junior group (12 and under) and the senior group (13 and over) learned dance combinations in Musical Theater, Tap, Jazz, Contemporary, and Hip Hop classes.  They also all got the opportunity to perform the dances that they learned in each class at the end of the day in a showcase for their parents.  There was an awards ceremony at the end as well, where select dancers were chosen for Excellence in Style awards.  Two dancers in their age level won this award for each style of dance.  Also, a scholarship to another Beyond The Stars convention was given out to only two dancers for each age level.  Quite a few DKDS dancers were awarded. Here are the results;

Junior Excellence in Style Awards:

  • Gabby Guzie: Jazz
