The Team performed with so much and everyone did an amazing job! What a great few days at the West Coast Elite Nationals in Long Beach. We really brought it!
Last night was the Grand Finale Gala Event and 2 of our dances re-competed for a National Title. We are so proud to announce our competition placement at Nationals:
1st Place (Oh Yeah!) - Small Hip Hop GOLD category. This dance also won the OVERALL BEST IN HIP HOP GOLD Category, the BEST SHOWMANSHIP AWARD and had the 4th HIGHEST OVERALL SCORE for the entire competition! What an amazing accomplishment, we killed this!
2nd Place & 6th Place - Large Hip Hop GOLD category. Our Medium HH Team was also invited to dance at the Gala and they won 2nd Place! This dance was outstanding and everyone really worked hard to make this piece a contender. Special Kudos to the entire Varsity team for placing 6th in one of the most competitive and difficult categories at Nationals. We were up against incredible talent and our performance was very exciting! We had 2 dances place in the Top 6 in this huge category - WOW!
6th Place - Medium Contemporary GOLD category. As always, this dance was amazing and performed with so much emotion. Such a dramatic piece that is absolutely breathtaking to watch! An all time favorite of Ms. Kaye's....
3rd Place - Small Contemporary SILVER category. A dance that has challenged us all year but was showcased at it's best. All of the changes required tremendous effort and really made a difference!
TPDT is definitely ON THE MAP... We received so many compliments from guests in attendance and dancers from other schools. We are clearly a team to beat and so next year, we'll be training harder than ever to defend our Championship Title and to place even higher in the other categories! It was a great few days full of fun and memories. These awards (and the crazy quantity of fabulous trophies!) are all a testament to your dedication and hard work. Special thanks to TPHS for their support and to Ms. Kaye and Simone for their vision and commitment. WE ARE TP - Proud Falcons and honored members of the Torrey Pines Dance Team. Great job everyone!
