Brittany said the competition teams will return to the studio in two weeks to begin learning new routines and preparing for the fall because, well, there’s just no rest when you’re coming home on top of your game.


"None of this would have been possible without the amazing and award-winning choreographer Miss Tara Frailey, our supportive parents and community," Brittany said. "These dancers have worked their tails off and put in blood, sweat and tears."
